How to Create a Dropdown Question
The Dropdown question type provides multiple answer options in a list that drop-opens when clicked. Unlike a typical multiple-choice question, a Dropdown question keeps the answers hidden in an expandable list, occupying less screen space.
ProProfs Quiz Maker lets you create dropdown questions that require quiz takers to select the correct answer option from a drop-down list.
Here’s what a question with answer options in a dropdown menu looks like.
Clicking the dropdown arrow reveals the answer options.
Benefits of adding a drop-down list in a question:
Answer options in the dropdown list get displayed only when clicked, thus occupying less screen space
