Multiple dropdowns in a single question

I am new to Lime survey and I am impressed with what I am seeing! Kudos to the team!

I had a specific query regarding questions. I wish to have a question which has multiple dropdowns in the same response (question). Is that possible in Limesurvey?

To illustrate, let me give an example.

Question Text: How will you plan for the weekend?

Answer: I will first <multiple choice dropdown between: make a shopping list; arrange for a trek; call friends for a party;> and then <multiple choice dropdown between: plan a shopping trip; pack for the trek; stock up on food and drinks>. I will also <multiple dropdown between: check credit card outstanding balance; buy new shoes; arrange for post-party cleanup>

Is this possible?

Thanks for your time!

This is possible and there are different approaches to it.

- You can have a look at the workaround section, there it is described how to put various questions in one line so they look like one question.

- Or you could just put 3 questions one below the other. At the end of the day, it is different responses anyway.
