Codigniter grouping in views

Big Grin 
Hello Codeigniter Community.

I am just new to Codeigniter. And I am facing a small challenge now. Would you help me solve this?  Smile Smile

Here is my problem:

I am making a questionaire system. The user should be able to create a questionaire, add questions and add choices to it.

The question will go to "question" table and the choices will go to the "choices" table.

I did this by saving the question first, get the inserted id, then insert each choice.

Now, I want to retrieve all the questions connected to a questionaire. I did this by joining the question table and the choices table.

I want my questions to look like this:

1. How's your mama?
[] Happy
[] Not Happy

Now my question is:

How can I display the question once, then display all the choices below? Like the provided example above.

Here's what I have tried so far:

    public function select_question_choices($survey_id)
        $this->db->select('question.id as question_id');
        $this->db->select('question.title as question_title');
        $this->db->select('choices.title as choices_title');
        $this->db->join('choices', 'question.id = choices.question_id');
        $this->db->where(['question.survey_id' => $survey_id]);
        $query = $this->db->get();

        return $query->result_array();

Then I call that method in a controller. Then I pass the result into a view.

Now, when I do a foreach loop, the result I get, compared to the given example above:

How's your mama
[] Happy

How's your mama
[] Not Happy

It shows the quesiton as many times as the choices. So if I have 5 choices, it will also display the question 5 times. 

Would you help me with this? I hope I explained myself well. Thanks in advance. Any help/suggestion would be much appreciated.  Smile Smile
