I think he's asking for the Roman numeral analysis of the minor scales. If that's the case, you'd analyze each scale like this:

Natural minor: i - ii dim. - III - iv - v - VI - VII

Harmonic minor (raised 7th): i - ii dim. - III+ - iv - V - VI - (nat.) vii dim.

Melodic minor (raised 6th & 7th): i - ii - III+ - iv - V - (nat.) vi dim. - (nat.) vii dim.

Make sense? Check online for analysis charts, too. It'll help you visualize and memorize the harmony patterns.
