Is this a Not-For-Profit Business?
3 options (radio buttons):
- Not-For-Profit - Registered with CRA
- Not-For-Profit - Not registered
My q.1: Which order should they go in?
'For-profit' is probably much more common than the NFP. That should place it at the top.
But this question is about NFP, so this option is the exception (even if it's common).
And it is not really appropriate to change the question to "Is this a For-Profit Business?"
My q.2: We've decided to force the user to explicitly choose an option. So there won't be a default option.
But the options cause branching. Choosing either of the NFP options will cause more questions to be displayed below, eg.: 'Does this business solicit charitable donations?'
Since there is no default option chosen, it's ambiguous whether or not the dependent content should be shown or not shown before the user has selected an option to the question above.
