I'm working on a college project. I need to create a Survey application, and the part that I am stuck on is how to bring data into my html form from a database, dynamically?
Basically, there are questions, and the answers, which the user will choose and both the questions and answers will be submitted into a database. That much I can do, but I cannot figure out how to bring the question itself from the database, and make it appear in the HTML page. For example:

Question: <input type="text" id="ques">, this will give me the form field to input the answer to the question and program the submit button to send both question and answer to the database, but how do I RETRIEVE the QUESTION itself, from the database? the Question: <input type="text" id="ques">, this is what I want to bring in from the database.

Also, I am using a firebase database, so if possible, please answer in reference to that, if not thats no problem. I can figure that part out if I can understand how to do that in html.

Based on your zip file I don't see anything that looks like server side code. Are you using any server side scripts? I mean, when you click a submit button the data is sent to the server for processing. What server side language are you using? I know nothing about Firebase, I don't use it, never been exposed to any Firebase code.

It appears to me you want to dynamically add the questions/answers using javascript. Is that correct?

The JSON you included only has the questions. Where are the possible answers? Are they the responses you show in your web page?

Why so many <form>s on the page? Are they really needed?

Show me the code you use to connect to the database.
