Allowing Students to Temporarily Disable Quiz Answer Choices in D2L

I'm trying to help my professor utilize a feature another professor had implemented on his quizzes some years back; I haven't found proof of the existence of this feature with my recent searching, but the feature improved accessibility for me immensely.

The quiz allowed students the ability to mark certain answer choices as 'unlikely' or 'incorrect' during the quiz. The idea is for the marked choice to be grayed out (or similar visual cue), making it temporarily un-selectable. However, students should have the option to revert their decision and consider the answer choice again if they wish.

Has anyone implemented such a feature or know of any third-party integrations that offer this functionality? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Currently, students do not have the ability to cross out alternatives from a quiz question. However, we have identified this as a feature request in the Brightspace Community's Product Idea Exchange:
