    I'm sorry, but the way how you want to validate the selection in the input table is not possible. A workaround would be to do it like:


    1. Change the Input type from Radio button to Checkbox.

    2. Set "Require an answer in every cell".

    3. Assign calculation values in each column. You have 12 rows, so you should put 12 lines of 1,1.

    4. Sum up all the Most Likely using our calculation widget (

    Please do the same for the Most Unlikely column.

    6. Now, add a conditional logic to hide the submit button when the Most Likely calculation is greater than 3.

    Please do the same condition for the Most Unlikely column. 

    Note that I have added a text in the form as a warning. You can do the same.
