    Hello websitenum1,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you want to display some other dropdown options if first dropdown option is changed? 

    There are two possible options available to achieve your requirement:

    1. You may like to to take a look at our "Dynamic Dropdowns" widget which should help you achieve your requirement. 

    2. You can take advantage of our "Conditions" feature to achieve your requirement. Here are the steps to achieve your requirement:

    a. Add one new dropdown question for every options you have in your first dropdown.

    b. Add condition to check the selected value of the first dropdown question and display the respective dropdown. Please check the screenshot below:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!
