Results from a form - multiple answers - format in SP list - additional characters

I am working on a Flow that takes Forms responses and feeds them into a SP list. I am having an issue with multiple choice questions where in the SP list these responses have additional ["characters"] around the responses. How do I remove these characters?  


I've done some research and looks like I need to apply a replace(... expression somewhere but can't get this to work and I am not familiar with expressions at all. 


So do I let the flow post the response with additional characters and then apply an update step with some replace( formula to remove or can this be applied when the item is created in the SP list using dynamic content response in the formula?


Please help.

I added this into the Flow but the formula is now returning as part of the response posted in the SP list?
