I am Creating a form with some question about 3 or 4 question.answers are submitted via radio button which has to be inserted in database.I have 2 problems

problem 1: in given code i have implemented for one question as we know for inserting the ans in database we have to use name attribute in $_post method now my question do we have repeat the same for radio buttons having different name attribute or can be done in other way.

problem 2:i have created table diseases with q1 as type enum with value month year weeks.
do i have to set these value for different questions in database or there is another way.

//que ans form
