The multi-select question allows respondents to select multiple answer options from a dropdown menu. This type of question is commonly used to gather information on preferences, opinions, or behaviors that may have multiple possible answers. For example, a multi-select question in a survey about food preferences might ask respondents to select all the types of cuisine they enjoy, such as Italian, Mexican, Chinese, or Indian.
