Multiple-choice with a single response

Single-choice is a multiple-choice question (MCQ) where respondents select only one correct answer from a list of options.

The single-choice format is frequently used for educational testing, pub quizzes, aptitude tests, yes-or-no quizzes and more.

With FlexiQuiz, you can also make a multiple-choice quiz where respondents can pick more than one answer from a list of options. Check out our multiple-choice guide for more information.
