# Adding label in list of figures and tables, removing dot from ToC, notation in a subfigure

I am having some problem with my thesis format. Please help me to fix these issues. thanks in advance

1. How to add figure label in subfigure. Currently it's showing as a) caption..... but I want it as Fig. 2.1(a) caption....
2. I want to get Fig. 1.1 example figure instead of 1.1 example figure in List of Figures. I can't use tocloft package. I have tested it. It's not working because of the titlesec and titletoc. I have used both of these packages extensively in my format.
3. I want the same for List of Tables. Now it comes as 2.1 abc. But I need Table 2.1 abc
4. Is there any way to cite the figure and table as bold face without typing \textit{...} everytime -

for example in page 6 it comes like this “Fig. 2.1” shows an example image. But I need “Fig. 2.1” shows an example image.

1. I need to remove the dots from the ToC

an working mwe is given here. complete format can be found here - Thesis formatting - ToC, figure

Not sure if I implemented all your requirements. It's recommended to ask for one thing in one question.
