This type of question allows you to obtain a unique answer from a predetermined group of alternatives.
This type of question is used, for example, in cases where it is required to report the status of a location (good, regular or bad) or to choose a type of activity that will be done on site ( maintenance, installation or removal, for example).
The answers must be previously defined in the platform, so the user cannot modify the default answers.
**Pro tip: If you have more than 5 answer alternatives, we recommend you to use the “Single Option Data” type of question, where you can previously upload a list of answers and configure it as the question alternatives.
