    Yes, you can do that by using conditionals.

    If I understood you correctly you would like to accomplish something like what can be seen on this jotform: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42664739893977

    Now to do that we set the conditions to fire on selection of "option 2"

    If that is what you wanted to achieve you can take a look here how you can use conditionals to create that and similar other tricks: Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic

    If you want to clone the above mentioned jotform to your account for closer inspection you can see how to do that here: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
