Summary13443: Logic error by using an Eclusive Option in a multiple choice question


  • Using a exclusive option in a multiple choice question (say Q1).

  • This Q1 question has some items and one item 'none of these' as an Exclusive Option

  • Using a second e.g. array question (say Q2) depending on Q1 with an Array filter (rows ar only shown when selected in Q1)

  • Respondent checks first one (or more) items in Q1 then the exclusive option 'none of these' (something that happens in reality)
    Here comes the bug:

  • Q2 logically depending on Array Filter in Q1 will now show all items formerly selected in Q1 before none of these was selected instead of none of these

Note: when the answers are saved, the db is correct - no item is saved as marked, when option 'none of these' was choosen.

Steps To Reproduce

See the image I attached or check it out at

Additional Information

When an exclusive option is selected in a multiple choice question, all other items are hidden. This is a little confusing for participants, because the 'non of these' answer is not yet understandable in this moment. I'll report this in an extra issue.

Can you send a simple lss file to test and reproduce the issue ? Just 2 question for example :).

I think you have already same system in 2.73 and/or before : can you confirm it's a regression ?
