Data Pre-population / Dynamic Replacement Options - What is this?

The Dynamic Replacement option allows you to replace arbitrary text within the questions/answers with dynamic data. You can use the variables/data stored in the Custom Variables or the External Reference Variable for Data Replacement/Pre-population.

How to replace text within the Questions/Answer options? What are the variables and codes available?

You can use the following variable tags. Use them wherever you wish to display the text.
