I am making a questionnaire in Microsoft Forms. There is one question and 5 choices. I would like to add a text box under the same question number for the respondent to provide additional information. I don't see how to add the text "Comment: " and a block for text without adding another question number and text that says "Provide additional information in response to Question #1".

There's currently no feature that will do that as far as I know.
Your option to have an additional question after the first multiple choice question appears to be the only way forward for now.
Hope that helps.

There is a second UserVoice asking for this exact comment functionality with 725 votes at time of writing. Hopefully Microsoft might pick this up soon.

The uservoice has been moved to the new feedback forum and is open here
Would vote up on it, but of course not available currently with no ETA.

Branching is a great way to add comments.
So let's say you have 5 questions. Each Question has a branch. The branch is your comment box. So then there are 10 questions in your survey. Q1 with a branch to Q2 which is a text question (can choose long form) that is your comment box. Q3 with a branch to Q4 which is the comment box for Q3. To make it like a true comment box, make sure the branching questions are optional.

This feature has been requested since M.S. Forms was out but, still nothing. The thousands of votes on the previous platform "UserVoice" were NOT TRANSFERRED TO "FeedbackPortal"and the new request there, also with thousands of votes, (https://feedbackportal.microsoft.com/feedback/idea/3262ec4c-de1c-ec11-b6e7-0022481f8914), mysteriously disappeared after being locked to add responses for a long while first.
I think M.S. cannot do it! :D
Use Google Forms, they are WAY BETTER, FREE FOR ALL and PAIN ON THE NECK FREE.
