I am creating a Google Doc Form for company's internal survey.

Currently there are 7 question types

  • Text
  • Paragraph text
  • Multiple choice
  • Checkboxes
  • Choose from a list
  • Scale
  • Grid

I am looking to add a question with yes/no options, like this one "Do you own an IBM PC?" which will have only one answer either yes or no.

One option is to use "Choose from list", which will render dropdown list seems awkward to me. I've checked "Make this question required", by default'yes' will be displayed, and there is no guarantee whether attendee read all available options.

Is there any workaround to display two radio buttons instead of dropdown to ask these kind of questions?

To get Radio Buttons on a Google Docs Form, you need set the Question Type to Multiple Choice

Google Docs Forms - Radio Buttons
