Hi @Michael_Belmoh
welcome to the forum! Please introduce yourself here!

I understand you have a problem and that's why you are asking but could you attach at least a draft form? It's much easier to understand and help then.

There isn't direct support for this in XLSForm but you can do it with a modification to the converted XML as described in Generate multiple choice alternatives, based on the answers in a repeat.

There is a proposal to add support for this in XLSForm at and it looks like @Ukang_a_Dickson and team will be addressing it soon.
