Some more variations as addition to the previous post.
First a frame and button-less style, aimed at connecting label and check mark and avoiding a box that could only look like a specific target area. People already know underlined text that can be clicked on (one could argue that this is misleading here, as these are not links, though). Note the breaks for the descenders. If only browsers would get that right!
As the flattened style from the previous post was found to look disabled (even though labels stayed black), I stripped it down to just an outline on the right.
Bottom: Mutually exclusive options presented another way. I tried a filled selection, but it looked too much like a button, so I went with a frame. I’m slightly concerned that users might try to drag the frame, but some highlighting (and lack thereof on the frame) would help.
