Criteria - Create | Manage | Edit - How to?

What are Criteria:

A standard, rule, or test on which a judgment or decision can be based. When designing surveys there may be questions that need to be displayed only if certain conditions are met. Similarly we may also want to create reports based on certain conditions / criteria.

For Example:

 IF Gender = Male
 Age = 18 Or Above

Display Question 5. ELSE Jump to Question 6.

Here the Criteria for displaying Question 5 is that respondent needs to be a Male Adult.
