    Unfortunately, you can't set a dropdown default value based on another dropdown. However, you can use the "Update form field value" condition in order to update a text box field based on the dropdown selection. Here's a demo form: https://form.jotform.com/53093936678975

    Here's a guide on how to do it:

    1. Create a dropdown field and a text box field.

    2. Click the "Conditions" button in the toolbar.

    3. Select the "Update a Form field value" condition.

    4. Here, it shows you that if "Age" is equal to "0-2 years old", then the "Infant/Babies" text will be inserted in the Output field which is "Category".

    5. You need to do this in the other items.

    Alternatively, you can use the dynamic dropdown widget in order to achieve this.
