Narrowing options via multiple choice

First things first, I am new to typeform so forgive me if this is an elementary question!

I want to ask 2 separate multiple choice questions, and then for my third question, have users select a “short list” of sorts. Here is what I mean:

Q1: Select 3-5 of your favorite things

Options: A, B, C, D, E 

(Assume user selects A and B)

Q2: Now select 3-5 of your favorite other things

Options: U, V, X, Y, Z

(Assume user selects X, Y, and Z)

Q3: Finally, if you had to select 3 total, which would be your true favorite things?

Options: A, B, X, Y, Z

^^ how do I get to that last step - in other words, how do I use what the user selected in Q1 and Q2 to create “smart” options for Q3?

Hi again, @Chief_LaurenM ! Our recall feature only works by adding information into the questions, but not the answers. Instead, you would need to manually add the answer options into the multiple choice, and if you’d like to show different answer options based on previous answers, you’d have to create every variety of the question accordingly. You could then use logic jumps like this to narrow down which question/answer option to show. 

Thanks for the quick response - that is a bummer! Would love to see logic built into answers in a future product release. Thanks
