How can I include clickable choices on a PDF form that affect the other fields?

Hello all,
I would like to create a form where you can choose from different options for a form field. When you click on the option you want, the other fields should automatically fill in with the correct answers. Example: "Which car would you like to rent?" -> person clicks on an option, it automatically fills in the fields how much the car costs, where it is, etc.
Also, I would like to include a form field where you enter the date once and all other date fields automatically update to it.
Thanks in advance 🙂

For date field, just name all fields same and when you enter date in one, all others will have the same date.

You can use a dropdown field for 'options' and then populate text fields depending on options selected,

there are few ways to achieve this, if you can share field names I could help you with an example.
