GUI inconsistency: Sort alphabetically vs. random order

Radiobutton-type question has setting "Sort answers alphabetically" with switch On/Off and choise "Random order" with possible values "Yes" and "No". It seems illogical.

Harder question: would it be good if these would be one three-value setting, as one can not have both random order and alphabetic order in the same time? I'm not sure if it would work or not.

Note: If I asked something and forgot to say version, I am using LS 5.x.

I think this warrants a bug report.

As you suggest, a 3-way "Answer order" setting with values "Normal", "Random" and "Alphabetic" would be optimum but at the very least it should be indicated that the current settings are exclusive and which takes precedence.

I can do a bug report, but should we first discuss about the way we will fix this? Or a bug report that refers to this thread for discussion?

I think discussion should be in the bug report. The core developers rarely visit the forum.
