Multiple Choice Quizzes - Multi-Question Fact Patterns

I often use a single fact hypo to drive multiple question calls (usually multiple choice). In other learning management systems, I've done it with sections, which carry over the fact pattern from one question to the next. However, I don't see how "groups" carry over any text, and random sequencing often is undesirable with this sort of multi-question fact pattern. Is there a reasonable way to do this in the Canvas Quiz function? Again, what I am after is a fixed series of questions (usually 2 to 4) in which students get the same facts, but differing question calls. I suppose I could just post the same facts in each, but this requires students to reread them each time for any potential changes. I am trying to convey the idea to the student that the same basic set of facts is in play for each of the questions at issue, but that the question calls (and perhaps unique variations in the basic facts) have changed. Perhaps these sorts of questions are unique to legal education (I teach Contracts and Business Associates), but I assume they might also be used in other areas of higher education. Thanks in advance for any help.
