    Hi Raj,

    That is possible using the form source codes. From the form source codes, find the value attribute and manually change it to your desired values.

    Example from the source codes:

    You'll see, I modified the value to just numeric and the labels are the default.

    Follow this guide to get your form source codes: How to Get Form Source Codes. We'll, before you do this, make sure to finish the form first. Because once the codes will be modified, there is no way you can import it back to the form builder. You have to embed the form using that method.

    Click gear, go to edit properties then change "calculation values".  If you have three options, put three values - one on each line.  Hope that helps.
