How do I add a product with dropdown options?

The easiest way to add a product with dropdown options is by creating a configurable product that links associated, simple products. 

 

Typically, a customer will use the default attribute set to add in-store inventory. You will need to make sure that the dropdown options are added to the default attribute set before beginning to add products. 

Navigate to CATALOG > ATTRIBUTES > MANAGE ATTRIBUTES

Scroll through the list and see if your desired options are preexisting. If not they will have to be created.
