How it Works
Add this question in your survey to ask your respondent to choose one answer (of multiple answers) from your list of answer choices. Multiple Choice questions are easy to analyze since they are closed-ended. Also every chart type in the reports is available for this question.
Tip: If your question has a long list of answer choices, consider using the Dropdown question type instead.
