    Hello leonardonit82,

    There are two options available to achieve your requirement:

    #1. You can add one new dropdown for every option and then add conditions to show / hide the respective dropdown box based on the selection of first dropdown. Please check the screenshot below on how to do this:


    #2. Alternative option is to go ahead and add "Dynamic Dropdowns" widget in your form which will allow display nested dropdown fields.

    Please take a look at the following demo form where I have gone ahead and added both the options explained above :  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51110945718958? 

    Feel free to clone the form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
