Using if formula in calculation for multiple condition

1. What is the issue? Please be detailed.
I am trying to add a calculation to score a question based on the option selected. There are four options in the question. If respondent select the first option, the score is 5. If second option is selected, the score is 3. If the third option is selected, the score is 2 and if the last option is selected, the score is 0

2. What steps can we take to reproduce this issue?

3. What have you tried to fix the issue?
I used if formula and or statement for the calculation. For example, if(${question_1}='option1',5,0) or if(${question_1}='option2',3,0) or if(${question_1}='option3',2,0) or if(${question_1}='option4',0,0)
4. Upload any forms or screenshots you can share publicly below.

You could replace the or with + to sum the outcomes of the if statements.

Or use nested ifs (replace the 0 in the first if with the second if etc) to continue testing the selection until you get a match or exhaust options.

Or use an instance lookup to get the score from a column in the choice list.

Or, simplest, set the name value for your question choices to the score desired, if you only need the score and not the question selection value.

@ahblake Please provide an example of using nested ifs for the sample provided in my question. Thank you.
