Require response for select question based on response to numeric question

I have two  numeric questions 'c4dDays' and 'c4dWeeks'.  If a respondent leaves both of those questions blank, is there a way to require a response for the subsequent select question 'c4dSelect'

Is the select question on the same page as the numeric questions?
Yes, it is on the same page
Also, does the select use radio buttons, checkboxes, or a combo box / dropdown?
radio buttons

Try setting your select question to not require a response, then give the select question this custom JavaScript verification:

if (!$('#c4dDays').val().trim() && !$('#c4dWeeks').val().trim() && !SSI_GetValue('c4dSelect')) {
    strErrorMessage = 'Error message here.';
}
