LimeSurvey offers the following question types:
a question only has answers. But there are certain question types (like
the Array question type) that have a main question, sub-questions and
answer options for the sub-questions. Sub-questions can be answered by
the survey participant often by using a predefined scale of answer
more complex example is the question type Array of texts where the
respondent has to enter values for combinations. In this case the value
entered by the respondent is the answer and the two scales on the array
