    I have multiple single choice fields, but I want it to be REQUIRED that one of the options is selected?

    You can set the Single Choice field as required in the Properties page. Here's how:

    1. Open your form and select the Single Choice field.
    2. Click the Properties button.
    3. In the General tab, enable the Required feature.

    I am aware of that option, and it does not solve the dilemma.

    If you have a "Single Choice" field or a "Radio Button" field, you can only select 1 answer. Now, if this field is set to "Required", then the form cannot be submitted without selecting an option.

    Please provide more details about the problem so that we can assist you properly. Also, please share the form ID/form URL.

    We'll wait for your reply. Thank you.

    I want to have more than one (multiple) Single Choice field and the user is required to select only one radial button out of the options presented.

    In the Single Choice field, can the user select any option or would you like to force the user to select a specific option?

    I apologize, but we need to get the form ID or form URL so that we can see the actual issue.

    We'll wait for your response. Thank you.

    Ideally, want the user to be required to select one of the committees, ministries, organizations options. But, is not required to select from every single choice field.

    I checked your form and the single choice fields are still not set as required.

    To my understanding, you want to have more than one single choice field and the user will only select one radio button out of the options presented. You can use the Show and Hide conditions. Here's a guide: How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer

    Here's a demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/70996431777976. Sample result:

    You can clone the demo form to check the conditions configuration. Here's a screenshot of the conditions:
