sorry, I think you misunderstood. Why are you wanting to select only one of them? For styling..? or are you trying to do the sytle for when one is checked/selected?

Are you required to use checkboxes? If not, you should use radio buttons instead. This would allow you to group buttons together, but only allow for one to be selected at a time.

I agree with using the radio buttons. Unless...

You may just WANT checkboxes, in which case you could give them behavior similar to radio buttons using a little JavaScript.

Your quiz might also have some questions where there might be more than one correct answer, and all of them should be selected.
