Dropdowns should be used sparingly. Ideally, you should use dropdowns when you have limited space or if your list is too long.
E.g Having more than 7 items in a predetermined list.
Dropdowns content should bring users to a different page or section within a page.
When you should consider something else
If you require users to select from a predetermined list of answers, do consider using the checkbox or radios component.
Try not to use checkboxes in the dropdown component as users may not know how to select multiple options presented to them in a dropdown.
Use when you want to display options when hover over button
