Due to COVID-19, we have to answer examinations online. We are given an examination paper and are answering it accordingly on our own.

The question paper comes in the format Question 3.A, Question 3.B etc.

I was wondering if there was a way to change the Latex section referencing format to appear like this?

Thank you.

\renewcommand{\thesubsection}{\thesection.\Alph{subsection}} % 


\renewcommand{\thesubsection}{\thesection.\alph{subsection}} % 

\renewcommand{\thesubsection}{\thesection.\Roman{subsection}} % 
\renewcommand{\thesubsection}{\thesection.\roman{subsection}} % 
\renewcommand{\thesubsection}{\thesection.\arabic{subsection}} %
