How can I limit the number of people who can answer a certain question?

    Is it possible to restrict a certain answer in one of the unique choices?

    For example: What colour you prefer?

    A) Black

    B) Yellow

    C) Green

    So, can I do something to limit the number of submissions to the answer black to 25? It should not be possible to answer "black" anymore. Like, the answer gets errased, or blocked for a possible 26th submission.

    Is this possible? Do you understand my question?

    Thank you.

    As far as I understood your idea, I can suggest to try Appointment Slots widget to limit the options:

    It would count previous "black" answers and would show "unavailable" if the limit of "25" is reached, like shown on the screencast below:


    In case if you need to limit the item selection, just set the Max Selection to "1". 

    Here is the test form I've created:

    Feel free to submit and reload it to see how it works.
