    I'm not sure if I understood correctly your requirement. But I think you're looking to have text displayed on your form and get some drop down fields displayed to complete the text. 

    We have a widget that does this, but it only works with text boxes, you could take a look to the widget here: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/narrative_fields 

    Please, let us know if you're looking for the same functionality, but with drop down fields. 

    We'll wait for your response.

    Both widgets will not allow you to use drop down fields, but I will forward this to our second level as feature request, though we cannot provide an ETA or ensure this will be developed, we will let you know as soon as we get any update about the ticket.
