About Child Questions

Let's take an example where you want to ask the name and age for every member in a household. For this you create a group (choice) question.

In this group example, the parent question will be “How many people are in the household?” and the child questions will be “What is his/her name?”, “What is his/her age?”.


You can make child questions of any question type except another group question. Child questions have a separate option of “Manage Rules” right next to the group. You can use it to add conditions within the group. Click here to learn more about Group questions.
