Can I somehow have mutually exclusive options in a Multiple Choice Question ?

    I have a question that has several options , one of which is 'None of the above' . Of course I would like the user to be able to select any combination of options EXCEPT for 'None of the above'. If they choose 'None of the above', I would like the options to become deselected and unselectable as it makes no sense to be able to select an option as well as 'None of the above' simultaneously. Is this somehow possible ?

    Unfortunately, that is not possible to achieve with a single Multiple Choice field. 

    As a workaround, you can use two separate fields. Inside of the first field, you can add the field options and inside of the second field add only 'None of the above' option. Then you can use conditional logic to clear the options that are selected inside of the first field if 'None of the above' option is select inside of the second field. You can also disable the first field if 'None of the above' option is selected.
