    Hi, is it possible to randomly generate a set of, say, 4 single choice text answers to a question, out of a longer list of possible answers? 

    If so, how many possible answers could be assigned to a given question?

    Could they be stored on a google doc and accessed that way?

    If none of the four answers was applicable, would it be possible for the user to select to "reshuffle" and pull another random 4 answers?

    If this is not possible, then the question is what is the maximum number of answers for a given single choice question? Or is it based on total characters, and if so, how many?

    Hi, I'm happy to help you today.

    As per your first question, unfortunately, it's not possible to randomly generate 4 single choice answers to a question out of a list of possible answers.

    If this is not possible, then the question is what is the maximum number of answers for a given single choice question? Or is it based on total characters, and if so, how many?

    If I understand you correctly, you want to know how many users can answer a single choice question, right? On a FREE plan you can get up to 100 submissions.

    Thank you, no, my second question was how many different answer options can there be for a single question. 

    Thank you!

    On behalf of my colleague, you are welcome. The size for options is limited to 65,535 bytes (up to 65,535 characters) per field (e.g. Single Choice, Multiple Choice, Dropdown).
