Allow "Other" option

When the Allow "Other" Option is clicked the following options will appear.  If Not Allowed is clicked then there will be no option to choose Other.  If Allowed is chosen then you are able to choose Other and if Allowed with Explanation is picked then you are able to click Other from the list but you will be required to enter an explanation.
