If you'd like to hide certain responses in the next iteration(s) that were selected at the previous iteration(s): 


Create a standard question table loop:


Create an "Ignore Response" Routing that looks like this:

Use this code in the Ignore Response Script window:


ALTERNATIVELY: you could also use "Q1.AllValues" as the Ignore Responses script.
It does the same thing as the above FORSET script, but it's more compact. See below image:


Change your Loop from a "Response Block - Vertical Loop" to a "Styles - Classic Responses":

So it looks like this when done:


If everyone is setup correctly, the loop should behave like what's shown in the below gif:

When I choose "Item 1" at "Brand A", it doesn't appear at "Brand B". When I choose "Item 4" at "Brand B", it doesn't appear at "Brand C", etc. The previous iterations selected response is now hidden.
