I am using classic quizzes and I'm trying to create a question where there are 8 answers to choose from, 3 are incorrect, 5 of them are correct but the student only has to get 3 correct to get a point for the question. In other words the student could choose any combination of 3 of the 5 possible correct answers to get a point.

Is this possible?

This is not possible as described with Classic Quizzes without manual grading of the question.

An approximation is to create a multiple dropdown list and create three drop downs within it. In each of the three dropdowns put one of the incorrect answers and either 2 or 1 of the incorrect responses: First two dropddowns would have 2 correct, 1 incorrect and the third dropdown would have 1 correct and 1 incorrect. Multiple dropdowns give partial credit, though, so they would get points for getting any of the three right, not all of the three.

Similarly, you could use a multiple fill in the blank question to approximate this. You could give them the answers, perhaps even give them a letter to type in, and then put all five correct responses down for the three fill in the blank items. The problem here is that if "Dog" was an answer, they could put "Dog" for all three answers. Hence you would need to go through and manually grade. Also, they would get partial credit for any of the three, not all of the three

You could use a multiple answers question and in the instructions, specify to pick exactly three choices. There's no way to enforce that, though, and it gives partial credit. If a student only selected 1 item and got it right, they would get 20% of the points. The only way for them to get all of the points would be to correctly answer all 5 responses. Then you would have to go through each quiz and manually grade that question.
