Student Survey - Choices Dynamically Update

Is there a way in Canvas to create a student survey (ungraded quiz) so that a student's response to one question dynamically updates the possible responses for the later questions?  For example, in Question 1 the student is presented with 20 choices to pick from. After making a selection for Question 1, the student now only has 19 choices for Question 2 (their response to Question 1 having been removed as a possible choice).  After making a selection for Question 2, then the student has 18 possible choices for Question 3 and so on. There would be more possible choices than questions.


I've looked at matching quizzes with distractors and multiple pull-downs but have not yet been successful in creating exactly what I need. I also tried doing this in the old Microsoft Survey (now Microsoft Forms) with the intent to embed the survey in Canvas. It didn't dynamically update the responses.  


Any suggestions appreciated!  Thanks!
