1st Dropdown (Roof Supplier) Choice of (CSR Monier | Boral Roofing | Bristile | Dynamic Roofing)
2nd Dropdown (Roof Type) populates based on the first answer
(if CSR = Concrete Roof Tiles | Elemental Roof Tiles | Solar Roof Tiles | Terracotta Roof Tiles)
(If Boral = Concrete Roof Tiles | Terracotta Roof Tiles)
(If Dynamic = Metal Roofing)
(If Bristile = Concrete Roof Tiles | Terracotta Roof Tiles | Metal Roofing)
3rd Dropdown (Roof Profile) populates based on second answers
(If CSR, Concrete Roof Tiles = Horizon | Traditional | Cambridge | Madison | Georgian | Homestead | Elabana)
(If CSR, Terracotta Roof Tiles = Nullarbor | Nouveau | Marseille)
(If Boral, Concrete Roof Tiles = Slimline | Macquarie | Capri)
4th Dropdown (Roof Colour) populates based on third answers
(If Boral, Concrete Roof Tiles, Slimline = Black | Grey | White | White)
I have a number of these type of quirries

There's an example of doing something like this, in this blog LiveCycle Blog: Mehrstufige Dropdown-Liste//Multilevel dropdown list
The best way might depend on what format the data is in that you are planning to use. If is it in an XML format then there are other ways that could be easier.
