$(this) is not working for me ... can anyone tell me what's my problem? thanks!

When I try to review the webpage, no response after I have clicked the button

  $(".spolier").on("click", "button", function(event){
    console.log(event.target);
  $(event.target).prev().show();
  $(event.target).hide();                 
});
 const $button = $("<button>Reveal Spoiler</button>");
//$(".spoiler").on('click',function(){
//  $(".spoiler span").slideDown(1000);
//  $(".spoiler button").hide();
//});
$(".spoiler").append($button);
$(".spoiler span").hide();

Just a typo. You misspelled "spoiler" in your selector. Change:

$(".spolier")

to

$(".spoiler")
