Summary12589: Randomization, relevance and more than one column in multi response questions

I have a multi respons question with a lot of answer options (e.g 19).
Some are not displayed. This is set by relevance.
The display is in 2 columns.
And the answer options are randomized.
Let's say: 7 answer options are displayed.
So, sometimes there are 4 inth first column, 3 in the econd. This is the expected behaviour.
But you get all possibilities:
1st column: 3, 2nd column: 4
1st column: 2, 2nd column: 5
1st column: 5, 2nd column: 2
1st column: 6, 2nd column: 1
1st column: 1, 2nd column: 6
And even:
1st column: 7, 2nd column: 0

Steps To Reproduce

No problem:
Just create a multi response question with answer option of which some are disabled by relevance.
Set randomization to true, number of columns = 2

  1. I don't really understand the bug.
  2. Can you confirm you still face it in LS3?

I can confirm, still in 3.13.2.
The bug is:
If there are only seven answers displayed (in two columns), I expect 4 options in column 1 and three options in column 2,
but now the number of answers in the two columns vary; the worst is: one answer option in column 1 and 6 in column 2.

In general: If some answer options are not displayed (by relevance) the distribution into two columns does not work properly. (a more or less 50/50 distribution)

With some css, you can surely set inline-block + width on li.

Need a attribute for this.

Without randomize : we have

1 2
3 4
5 6
