Hide last four columns on a radio button rank order question

Hi,

I had a similar problem a while ago and unfortunately never found a solution. I want to ask people out of seven options, what their top three preferences are. I don't want them selecting multiple options at the same value (eg all 'first' in preference), and I don't want to make them rank all seven options. This needs to be a short, quick, approachable marketing survey.

I've tried code I found online, adjusting for column number, but I can't make it work:

Qualtrics.SurveyEngine.addOnload(function() {
$("QR~QID14~7~0").up().hide();
});

A picture to demonstrate what I'm trying to accomplish:

Any help is appreciated, I'm tearing my hair out! Matrix and Lickert options don't work, as they all allow multiple options to have the same value.

    Would a Pick Group and Rank question, with just one box ("Top 3") work?

    You would need to Force Response and set Validation to Enforce 3 entries. (And obviously, you need to tell people to drag their top 3 from the list at left to the box at right and order with Most Desired as #1.

    Not optimal for all needs... but it was all I could think of to make it do what you want in a pinch. Hopefully others will have thoughts as well.

    While a possibility, it's asking a lot from the respondent. We're wanting this to be as simple and quick as possible.

    I don't want to allow people to select more than one at first preference, etc. A MAtrix grid doesn't allow for forcing a unique configuration
