less than 5 at a time yes or no

On the Error Check section, I have a Schedule C question:

On the Car & Truck Expenses Worksheet: Less than 5 at a time - 1 must be entered.

My options are "No entry", "Less than 5 at a time Yes", and "Less than 5 at a time, No".

I have no idea what is expected here...

Can anyone help?
    The question is asking if you used less than or more than 5 vehicles in conjunction with operating the business.  So if you had a fleet of 10 vehicles the answer would be no, in you case if you only used one vehicle the answer would be yes.  If you scroll down the return a bit you will see the question which is longer than the short description turbo tax provides.
    • I just have to say... this is a really poorly worded wizard, it gives an error with zero feedback telling the user to choose "no entry" "less than 5 at a time, yes" or "less than 5 at a time, no" ... The question is missing though. The form is below the error, but no highlight on the form as to what area of the form the question is in reference to.
    • Oh, thank you!
    • They obviously haven't fixed it. I had to figure out what they were asking by searching for the question. I can't find it on the form either. I'm trying to use a MAC and on half the screens it only shows half and I can't scroll back and forth ... I have to reload a few times to see the left side. I always used to like Turbo Tax but now they are charging for anything beyond the VERY basic, and it has one really glaring calculation error, has missed a major deduction, takes me through TONS of ridiculous question steps ... I am NOT at all impressed and I don't think I'll be using or recommending it to anyone ever again. Thanks for the help here though!
    • These comments are from 3 year ago and they haven't fixed it!!! This software sucks.

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
