There are a few things I want to change. First, the table itself doesn't look very nice, I would like all contents in the first and last column to be center aligned, like the other columns, but whenever I change X to c, I get lots of errors. I would also like the table to be aligned to the text preceding it, e.g., currently it is aligned to the number 1 in the enumerate environment, but I would like it to be aligned to the text after the number 1 (so that the entire "width" of the table is the same as the width of the text). Also for some reason there is a large gap between the table and the next item, how can I make this gap smaller universally, since after each list there will be a table.

Don't use the floating table environment. For the last column, you need >{\centering\arraybackslash}. Declare the width as \linewidth. If you don't want the extra vertical space around the table, you can remove the center environment.

Perhaps you'd like to consider using the booktabs package (no vertical rules in your tables):

  • @HarishKumar I added some comment in my answer. Thanks. Feb 14, 2014 at 1:15
  • Thanks! The booktabs option is a good one too, but I'm after the vertical lines :)

  • @TrueTears I used to think that way too. I suggest you read this, the intro of the booktabs manual and this. It may not change your mind but it's very interesting reading.
