I am now in the data analysis part of my research project, and in the 'responses' section, there is an extra multiple-choice answer added to one of my questions, which wasn't on the main question list of the survey.1.png

What is weirder is that it's showing 31 participants selected it. This has completely skewed my results. Can you please help?2.png

@1803726 Looks like someone has been editing the form. Was it shared with someone else, or is this a group form where others have edit access?

Same thing happened with me. Is there anything we can do about this? Please help.
