Here's a quick example:

<form>

<select>
<option>red
<option>blue
<option>green
<option>black
</select>

<input type=radio name=clrs onclick="remove(0);">Red
<input type=radio name=clrs onclick="remove(1);">Blue
<input type=radio name=clrs onclick="remove(2);">Green
<input type=radio name=clrs onclick="remove(3);">Black

</form>

<script>
function remove(n){
  var sel=document.forms[0].elements[0];
  sel.options[n]=null;
}
</script>

Here's a better one:

<form>

<select>
<option>red
<option>blue
<option>green
<option>black
</select>

<input type=radio name=clrs onclick="remove(this.value,this);" value=0>Red
<input type=radio name=clrs onclick="remove(this.value,this);" value=1>Blue
<input type=radio name=clrs onclick="remove(this.value,this);" value=2>Green
<input type=radio name=clrs onclick="remove(this.value,this);" value=3>Black

</form>

<script>
function remove(n,rad){
  var sel=document.forms[0].elements[0];
  sel.options[n]=null;
  rad.disabled=true;
  for(i=n*1+1;i<document.forms[0].clrs.length;i++){
    document.forms[0].clrs[i].value--;
  }
}
</script>
