    For instance: If I have a drop down box with options Blue and Red. Is it then possible that the next drop down box have options Light Blue and Dark Blue, when Blue is choosen and Light Red and Dark Red if Red is selected in the first drop down.

    according to your request,  you can achieve what you are looking for by using conditionals logics combined with 3 dropdown menu fields.

    Main color dropdown

    Red color dropdown

    Blue color dropdown

    Then with conditional logics you can show/hide the second dropdown menu depending on the color previously selected by the user at the main dropdown.

    Please check this example: http://form.jotform.co/form/33212556584859? and feel free to clone it for your own use

    Hope it helps
