# How do I get the .js (JavaScript) file back in my MASH ?

I deleted the javascipt file from among the files in my MASH lesson workspace. The .html and .css files are still there but I deleted the .js file while trying to learn something...like creating a NEW file and then trying to delete that new file.

script.js
```function random_number(num) {  // New function called random_choice that takes one parameter, num (or a number)
// Get a random number between 0 and a passed-in number
var num = num || 4  // If no number passed in, default to 4
return Math.floor(Math.random() * num); // Round the answer down (floor) of a random number between 0 and 1 and multiply it by a number. Then return a value and exit the function.
}

function mash_choice() {  // New function called mash_choice that doesn't take any parameters
// Since MASH is a special case, give it its own list
var mash = ['mansion', 'apartment', 'shack', 'house'];  // The array of choices to pick from
var randomNum = random_number(4);  // Use the above function to get a number between 0 and 4
return mash[randomNum];  // Return the list item the random number function just picked and exit the function
}

// Get a random answer from the available answers in a given category
var choices = [];  // A blank array to hold the user provided answer
var selector = 'input[name="' + category + '[]"]';  // Build a CSS selector for the blanks in our passed in category
var inputs = document.querySelectorAll(selector);  // Get all of the inputs that match our selector

for (var i = 0; i < inputs.length; i++) {  // Begin a for loop that will run through the code. i++ = add one to the counter which is "i"
answer = inputs[i].value;  // Get the input with the index value of the counter and get the value ie. if they typed in dog, you get back "dog"
if (answer !== '') {  // If answer doesn't equal a blank... !== means doesn't equal
}
}
return choices[random_number(choices.length)];   // Pick and return a random choice choice.length = number of answers the user provided in that category
}

// Find the spans that need filled
var home = document.querySelector('#home');  // This says make a new variable and find the HTML tag that has the ID of "home"
var profession = document.querySelector('#profession');
var pet = document.querySelector('#pet');
var location = document.querySelector('#location');

// Fill them with the provided answers
home.innerHTML = answers.mash;  // Change the content of the element in the HTML doc with the id "home" to the "mash" value in answers
profession.innerHTML = answers.profession;  // Change the content of the element in the HTML doc with the id "career" to the "career" value in answers
}

function handle_submission(evt) {

// Build up our answers object
'mash': mash_choice(),
}

}

// Find the form on the page and attach a handler for when it's submitted
var form = document.querySelector('#mash');
form.addEventListener('submit', handle_submission);  // Anytime the form is submitted, we want to call the function handle_submission
