>>> %Redefine the first level

>>> %Redefine the second level
>>> \renewcommand{\theenumii}{\Alph{enumii}}
>>> \renewcommand{\labelenumii}{\theenumii}

>>> %Redefine the third level
>>> \renewcommand{\theenumiii}{\roman{enumiii}}
>>> \renewcommand{\labelenumiii}{\theenumiii}

>>> %Redefine the forth level
>>> \renewcommand{\theenumiv}{\alph{enumiv}}
