Numbered lists

Hi !
I'd like to write a test at school for my students, something like this:
1. my first question
2. my second one
Some explanations, tables, etc.
3. my third question.
I don't understand why I've got a "1." instead of a "3."
I've used some markdown editors, and I could do this each time...

Is there a way to achieve this, or an option to pass to the program ?
I thought it was the 'cool trick' of markdown...

Thank you !

    When you type this:

    1.  One
    2.  Two
    3.  Three

    You have a list, followed by a regular paragraph, followed by a separate list. So list item "Three" will correctly be renumbered as "1."

    If you want to have a single list, then you have to indent the "stuff" that goes along with the second list item, so that list item "Three" is part of the same list as the first two items. It will then correctly be numbered as "3."

    1.  One
    2.  Two
    3.  Three
