PHP Page

<!DOCTYPE html>


$q1 = intval($_GET['q1']);
$q2 = intval($_GET['q2']);
$con = mysqli_connect("localhost","FYP","123","FYP");
if (!$con) {
    die('Could not connect: ' . mysqli_error($con));}

if ($q1=="Cite" || "Define "){
return $level=1;}
elseif ($q1==""){
    return $level=2;
$sql1="SELECT * FROM SYLL_INFO WHERE C_Chapter = '".$q2."' AND Syll_pLO LIKE  '%".$level."'";
$result1 = mysqli_query($con,$sql1);
while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result)) { 
    echo "<td><option >". $row['Syll_PLO']. "</option></td>" ;
$sql2="SELECT * FROM SYLL_INFO WHERE C_Chapter = '".$q2."'";
$result2 = mysqli_query($con,$sql2);
while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result)) { 
    echo "<td>". $row['Syll_CLO']."</td>" ;

Appreciate your help

When you construct the URL in AJAX code, you have to separate the query parameters by ampersand (&). That is, ql=a&q2=b
