Why do some columns (fields) not appear in a new form?

Hi, I'm a new user. I created a Smartsheet with roughly 60 columns for a survey form, but not all of these appear when I create a form. Forty-eight (48) of these columns are Dropdown (Multi Select). Each column represents a month of the year for 4 different categories, so that is why there are so many. In other words, there are 4 categories of dropdown lists and 12 columns for each type of list (i.e., select-the-activities-for-January column, select-the-activities-for-February column, etc.). When I create a Form and Preview it, however, none of these columns appear. All the other columns/fields appear, but not the Dropdown (Multi Select) ones.

I would have thought Smartsheet's Form creator would allow me to customize how many fields appear per page for a form, but maybe not. Could that be a factor? Is there a limit to how many columns (fields) can be on a form?

Any advice would be welcome. Thanks.
