Desired Table of Contents

I am writing a college mini-thesis.The table of contents is pretty non-standard. How do I recreate this table of contents in LaTeX. Even weirder requirements would be something like

Chapter I

  1. Introduction

    1.1 Apple

    1.2 Ball

    1.3 Cat

Chapter II

  1. Literature Review

    2.1 What the apple?

    2.2 Frustrated atoms

Is it possible to create this? I tried using titlesec package but couldn't do much. I have this in my preamble for now.

{\chapter} % command
[display] % shape
{\bfseries\Large\itshape} % format
{CHAPTER \ \Roman{chapter}} % label
{0.5ex} % sep
} % before-code
] % after-code


\titlespacing{\section}{12pc}{1.5ex plus .1ex minus .2ex}{1pc}

I hope this will work for you.

% chaptocprob.tex  SE 652705

\renewcommand{\cftchappresnum}{Chapter }

    @SushilKhatri I tried to answer about the ToC, nothing about your weirder requirements. Are you sure you want those? A reader could get confused if they see a chapter designated as 4 but it is numbered as IV. Commented Aug 3, 2022 at 18:32
