    Do not want recipients to be able to pick more than one choice when responding.

    To limit your users to only one answer for multiple choices we recommend using the "radio button" field since you can list multiple answers but only one of them is allowed to be used.

    As described by my colleague, "Radio button" is the best option to limit answer to only one selection in a multiple choice question. So please try it.
