JavaScript Treehouse Club - MASH MASH - JavaScript Stuff You Can Change

I can't get any answers to show except the one for whether I'll be living in a mansion, apartment, etc. please help

heres my .js code please help

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 

function get_answer(category) { 
    // 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 
    var answer;  

    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 
            choices.push(answer); //...add it to the end of the list 
    return choices[random_number(choices.length)];   // Pick and return a random choice choice.length = number of answers the user provided in that category 

function fill_in_answers(answers) {
    // Find the spans that need filled
    var mash = document.querySelector('#mash');  // This says make a new variable and find the HTML tag that has the ID of "home" 
    var location = document.querySelector('#location');
    var profession = document.querySelector('#profession');
    var partner = document.querySelector('#parnter');
    var pet = document.querySelector('#pet');
    var honeymoon = document.querySelector('#honeymoon');
    var kids = document.querySelector('#kids');

    // Fill them with the provided answers
    mash.innerText = answers['mash'];
    location.innerText = answers['location'];
    profession.innerText = answers['profession'];
    partner.innerText = answers['partner'];
    pet.innerText = answers['pet'];
    honeymoon.innerText = answers['honeymoon'];
    kids.innerText = answer['kids'];
    mash.innerHTML = answers.mash; // Change the content of the element in the HTML doc with the id "home" to the "mash" value in answers 
    location.innerHTML = answers.locarion;
    profession.innerHTML = answers.profession;  // Change the content of the element in the HTML doc with the id "career" to the "career" value in answers 
    partner.innerHTML = answers.partner;
    pet.innerHTML = answers.pet;
    honeymoon.innerHTML = answers.honeymoon;
    kids.innerHTML = answers.kids;

function handle_submission(evt) {
    evt.preventDefault();  // Stop the form from reloading the page 
    evt.stopPropagation();  // Stop the form from reloading the page

    // Build up our answers object
    var answers = {
        'mash': mash_choice('mash'),
        'location': get_answer('location'),
        'profession': get_answer('profession'),
        'partner': get_answer('partner'),
        'pet': get_answer('pet'),
        'honeymoon': get_answer('honeymoon'),
        'kids': get_answer('kids')
    // Fill in the answers

    var answer_div = document.querySelector('#answers');

// 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
