Formatting Issue in email

Hi,newbie....i use MS Forms and have a simple flow. it generates an email as noted below, i am not sure why but the selections that the res ponder provides(me in the test) always puts a parenthesis around the response. I am using drop down lists in the form, any idea how to fix? 

I highlighted the issue in red.....

There are several ways to remove [], for example using 'replace' function like below.

 

replace(replace(outputs('Get_response_details')?['the output of dropdown list'], '[', ''),']', '')
You need to input dynamic content of the response in bolded place.
 
This function replaces '[' with blank, then replace ']' with blank.

That is because  the response type is array.

if you want to remove [], you need to process the response from Microsoft Forms in your Flow.
