    Can you please provide us ID of the form you are working on and tell us in which matrix table you want to make second column read-only?

    You can use this CSS code to make second column read-only:

    .form-matrix-table td:nth-child(3) input{

    pointer-events: none;}

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/62433233810951 

    If you have more than one matrix field in your form this CSS code will make second column read-only on all matrix tables. If you want to make second column read-only for only one matrix field then you will need to add ID of that field in-front of the CSS code I provided you. 

    Inside of this guide you can find how to find field ID:

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
