    h) National Museum of History (Muzium Sejarah Nasional)

    i) Royal Malaysian Air Force Museum

    j) Royal Malaysian Police Museum (Muzium Polis Diraja Malaysia)

    i want to use the selection statement for the choice of museum.

    i want to use the Math.floor and Math.random methods to get the random number (I dont Understand).

    i want my page have an html form with a simple one-line text box that should display the name of the museum.

    i want have a button that when pushed will invoke a JavaScript function that randomly chooses and displays the museum name into the text box.

    Even though, what you've tried?

    In JavaScript (which is what your requirement is, not Java) to generate a number between 0 and 9 you'd do something like:

    var index = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10);

    An array of strings would look something like:

    var museums=['number1', 'number2', 'number3'];

    Does this give you any ideas?
