Advanced Branching -Enable ability to skip/hide questions

Currently, branching works best when only two branches exist. Forms should be able to support more than two branches for a question. The end goal is to hide all irrelevant questions based on a user's response to a previous question.

Below is a example question for this use case:
Q: Please select your preference below.
1. Option A
2. Option B
3. Option C
4. No Preference

Expected Functionality:
If "No Preference" is selected, I want to skip to the end of the form.

If "Option A" is selected, I want to skip to a specific question. The same is true for Options B and C.

When Option A is selected, the follow-up questions for Options B and C should not appear.

When Option B is selected, the follow-up question for Option C should not appear.

        Without this feature I cant use Forms. It's that simple. I'm not aware of any competing services that lack this most basic feature.

        Can't this be already achieved using skip to question?

        A -> go to A1
        B -> go to B1
        C -> go to C1
        D -> go to the end

        A1 -> go to A2
        A2 -> go to A3
        A3 -> go to the end
        B1 -> go to B2
        B2 -> go to B3
        B3 -> go to the end
        C1 -> go to C2
        C2 -> go to C3
        C3 -> go to the end

        This would be great, I had a form that needs this specific feature.

        Option 1 (Question 1-5 & 16-20) or Boxes A, B, C, D
        Option 2 (Question 1-10 & 21-25) or Boxes A, B, E, F
        Option 3 (Question 1-5 & 11-20) or Boxes A, C, E, F
