They are asking for us to either add "simple math question" type of captcha,
Do you have any suggestions? Is it possible to add a "simple math question" captcha option?

I think that a math captcha is a good idea. This page has some other ideas on it https://www.usertesting.com/blog/2014/04/09/think-your-site-needs-captcha-try-these-user-friendly-alternatives/ .

You could also try the existing honey pot tag for forms: {#form.honeyPot} . That will add a hidden field that if filled out will treat the submission as spam. It can be used with CAPTCHA as an extra protection.

We just added support for reCAPTCHA. http://www.branchcms.com/blog/post/new-recaptcha-integration . This may be a good alternative.
