Adding good questions is essential to the creation of a Google Form, so it's important to know what answers each question type will provide.

If your question is brief or self-explanatory, put the whole question in the "Title" box.

If it's long or intricate, use the Help Text field to give more detail.

Then, choose the type of response you'd like from people taking the survey.

"Text" is a brief typed message, while "Paragraph Text" gives some more typing room.

To give your respondents predetermined answers, choose either "Multiple choice," which requires respondents to choose one, "Checkboxes," which allows more than one, or "Choose from a list," which requires respondents to choose one option from the dropdown.

Then type the choices below.

Choose "Scale" if you want your survey taker to rank things on a numbered scale, or "Grid" to pick from a table with rows and columns.

Finally, choose "Date" to have respondents pick a date, with or without a "year" or "time," and "Time" to specify just a time of day, or a "Duration." Check "Required question" if you want to make sure it gets answered by all your respondents.

Click "Done" to preview your question.

You can edit, duplicate, or delete the question using the button to the right.

Then, select "Add item" below to add more questions to your survey.
