With HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, you can create an engaging quiz that your audience will love. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of creating a multiple-choice quiz using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Follow this video for complete guidance :

Step 1: Create the HTML structure

The first step in creating a multiple-choice quiz is to create the HTML structure. We will use the <form> element to create the quiz.

<div class="quiz-container">
  <h1>Multiple Choice Quiz</h1>
  <hr>
  <form id="quiz-form">
    <div class="d-flex">
      <div class="question">
        <p>1. What is the capital of France?</p>
        <div class="answers">
          <label>
            <input type="radio" name="q1" value="a">
            Paris
          </label>
          <label>
            <input type="radio" name="q1" value="b">
            Madrid
          </label>
          <label>
            <input type="radio" name="q1" value="c">
            London
          </label>
          <label>
            <input type="radio" name="q1" value="d">
            Rome
          </label>
        </div>
      </div>
      
      <div class="question">
        <p>2. What is the largest planet in our solar system?</p>
        <div class="answers">
          <label>
            <input type="radio" name="q2" value="a">
            Venus
          </label>
          <label>
            <input type="radio" name="q2" value="b">
            Mars
          </label>
          <label>
            <input type="radio" name="q2" value="c">
            Jupiter
          </label>
          <label>
            <input type="radio" name="q2" value="d">
            Saturn
          </label>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
    <button type="submit" class="submit-btn">Submit</button>
  </form>
  
  <div class="result" id="result"></div>
</div>

Step 2: Style the quiz with CSS

Once you have created the HTML structure, you can style the quiz with CSS. In this example, we will use CSS to style the questions, answer choices, and submit button.

body {
  font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
  font-size: 16px;
  background-color: aliceblue;
}
form{
  margin-top:20px;
}
.quiz-container {
  width: 80%;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

h1 {
  text-align: center;
}

.question {
  width:45%;
  margin-bottom: 20px;
  background-color: #fff;
  padding:20px;
}
.question:nth-child(odd){
  margin-right:5%;
}
.question p{
  font-weight: bold;
}

.answers {
  margin-bottom: 20px;
}
.answers label:not(:first-child){
  border-top:1px solid #e0e0e0;
}

label {
  padding:10px 0;
  display: block;
  margin-bottom: 10px;
}

input[type="radio"] {
  margin-right: 10px;
}

.submit-btn {
  display: block;
  margin: 20px auto;
  padding: 10px 20px;
  background-color: #4CAF50;
  color: #fff;
  border: none;
  border-radius: 5px;
  font-size: 18px;
  cursor: pointer;
}

.result {
  font-weight: bold;
  font-size: 22px;
  margin-top: 20px;
  padding: 10px;
  background-color: #f2f2f2;
  border-radius: 5px;
  text-align: center;
}
.d-flex{
  display: flex;
}

Step 3: Add JavaScript functionality

Finally, we will add JavaScript functionality to our quiz. We will use JavaScript to check the user’s answers and display their score.

const quizForm = document.getElementById('quiz-form');
const resultDiv = document.getElementById('result');
const correctAnswers = ['a', 'c'];

quizForm.addEventListener('submit', e => {
  e.preventDefault();
  
  let score = 0;
  const userAnswers = [quizForm.q1.value,quizForm.q2.value];
  userAnswers.forEach((answer, index) => {
    if (answer === correctAnswers[index]) {
      score += 1;
    }
  });

  resultDiv.innerHTML = `Your score is ${score}/${correctAnswers.length}`;
});

      margin-top:20px;
    }
    .quiz-container {
      width: 80%;
      margin: 0 auto;
    }
    
    h1 {
      text-align: center;

    .question {

      margin-bottom: 20px;
      background-color: #fff;
      padding:20px;

    .question:nth-child(odd){
