    Welcome to TeX.SX! It would be great if you could show us what you have tried. Posting a minimal working example that indicates what you are trying to do makes it easier for people to understand what you want. It also makes it easier for people to help you, since they have some code to start from, and hence much more likely that some one will try to help you. – Andrew Apr 26 at 3:08

    There are dedicated packages for that, but if you do not want to use those you could do \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{enumerate} \item How long do marmots hibernate?\reversemarginpar\marginpar{30pt} \item How many hours do koalas sleep per day?\reversemarginpar\marginpar{30pt} \end{enumerate} \end{document}. – user121799 Apr 26 at 3:15
