  • 10. Step 5: Editing your existing form.  
      • Editing a existing form can be tricky in google, The reason is as mentioned in previous step that Google treats form as a special form of Spreadsheet.
      • So next time you want to edit your form and you select your document it will open up it as a Spread sheet containing responses.
      •   Let it open and If you see the menu item you will see a item labeled Form(Some Number)
      • Clicking above will open a menu and you can select Edit Form.
      • Though I would not suggest editing an  existing form...but sometimes you will need to change it before any interaction with user has happened.
