B. Write "1. a) (i)," 1. a) (ii) and so on on three different answer sheets
C. Write "1. a) (i), (ii) and (iii)" in the top left corner of an answer sheet
D. None of the above

Thanks
If question 1 has parts a and b, and a is further broken down into i. ii, and iii

You put 1 at the top of the sheet, in the blank provided for the question number. This is very important.

beyond that it doesn't matter, as long as it is clearly labeled which section of your response goes with which subpart.

I would write "a" at the top left corner, "i" immediately beneath it, answer part i using as many lines as necessary, then skip one line, write ii, and do the same until I complete all parts of a, then move on to b. I would not use additional answer sheets until I filled up the first one.

Just to be clear: each subpart does not need its own answer sheet.
