Edited 3 Years Ago by Nick Evan: Fixed formatting

For the radio button u need to group both radio buttons that means u gona have the same name for both of them u can change this line of code

<input type="radio" name="genderM" value="Male" id="Male">Male
<input type="radio" name="genderF" value="Female" id="Female">Female

to this

<input type="radio" name="optGender" value="Male" id="Male">Male
<input type="radio" name="optGender" value="Female" id="Female">Female

and then again u need to change ur script to this

function validate_gender()
{
var choice = false;

for(var x = 0; x < document.theNameOftheForm.optGender.length; x++)
{
	if(document.theNameofTheform.optGender[x].checked == true)
	choice = true;
}else{
	alert("Pls Select Your Gender");
}

Oh I forgot...... for drop down list you need to change
this line of code <option value="selected">SELECT</option> to this <option value="0"SELECTED>SELECT</option> And to validate would be something like this

function validateRating(form)
{
	var Rating = 1;

	if (form.Number.selectedIndex == 0) 
                {
		alert("Please select a rating");
		Rating = 0;
	}

	if (Rating) {
		form.submit();
	}
}
