Limiting number of items within Closed Card Sort or Radio button Grid



We are currently scripting a survey where we have a question with multiple answer choices that we want our respondents to place into relevant groups.

The required condition for answering the question is – respondents are allowed to place only 1 item in Group A but are allowed to place as many items as they want in Group B, Group C and Group D.


We are unable to figure out how to script this onto the platform.


  1. Our first choice for question type would be Grouping (Closed Card Sort) but we are unable to restrict/limit the number of items placed in each group (e.g. restrict number of items in Group A to one choice only)
  2. An alternate choice would be to use a Radio Button Grid instead but here too we are unable to restrict/limit the number of answer choices allocated to column A  to only 1. (e..g restrict the number of answers allocated to Column A only)


Any ideas about how we can work around this issue?



For your reference here is the question as it might help you understand our issue:


Please sort each description as you think it relates to you personally. For each description, your choices are:

  • The one that’s most like me (one choice only)
  • Quite like me (more than one choice allowed)
  • That’s not really me (more than one choice allowed)
  • Not like me at all (more than one choice allowed)

Answer Choices:

  • A
  • B
  • C
  • D
  • E
  • F
  • G
  • H
  • I
