N/A or None option on Multiple-Choice questions

On mulitple-choice questions there is an additional option for "other" with a text box, but no additional option for N/A or "none". This creates an issue where in order to keep the order we need for answer options where there is both "Other (specify)" and "None".



Who did you travel with?

- Family member(s)

- Friend(s)

- Other (please specify)

- No one -- I traveled alone


Our only solution to keep the answers in a logical order is a dynamic text box but that (a) is inconsistent with other questions with an "other (specify)" option and no "none" option & (b) does not force a respondent to answer the text box.
