Adding input type dynamically

Trying to dynamically add input type text boxes by selecting how many need to be created within the .answer-box using a select tag with options. What am I missing here?

And please refrain from telling me to use .on instead of bind. Thank you!

Here is jsfiddle: https://jsfiddle.net/otjuhp59/

Code:

$(document).ready(function(){
$("#create-skill").unbind("click");
$("#create-language").unbind("click");
$("#create-skill").bind("click", addSkill);
$("#create-language").bind("click",addLanguage);

var language=$("#lang").val();
var skill=$("#skill").val();
addSkill(skill);
addLanguage(language);

});

function addSkill(s){
$(".answer-box").html("");
for(var i=1; i<=s; i++)
{
var skillContent="Skill "+i+"<br /><input type='text' id='txt1"+i+"' name='txt1"+i+"' value='' placeholder='Please enter Skill' /><br />";
$(".answer-box").append(skillContent);
}

}

function addLanguage(l){

$(".answer-box").html("");
for (var j=1; j<=l; j++)
{
var langContent="Language "+j+"<br /><input type='text' id='txt2"+j+"' name='txt2"+j+"' value='' placeholder='Please enter laanguage' /><br />";
$(".answer-box").append(langContent);
}
}


HTML:

<div class="select-container">
<div class="user-input-box">
<p>Select number of Skills:</p>
<select class="skill" id="skill">
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="1">2</option>
<option value="1">3</option>
<option value="1">4</option>
</select>
<input type="button" id="create-skill" name="create-skill" value="Create Skill" />
<p>Select number of Languages:</p>
<select class="lang" id="lang">
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="1">2</option>
<option value="1">3</option>
<option value="1">4</option>
</select>
<input type="button" id="create-language" name="create-language" value="Create Language" />
</div>
</div>
<div class="answer-box">

</div>
</div>


CSS:

.select-container{border:1px solid black; min-width:200px; min-height:100px; float:left;}
.user-input-box{width:180px; min-height:100px; float:left; margin-left:5px;}
.answer-box{border:1px solid black; min-width:400px; min-height:100px; float:left; margin-left:100px;}

Answer

There are few modifications needed

Hope this snippet and comments will be useful

JS

$(document).ready(function(){
 // remove all the bind & unbind
 // create input on click of button create-skill
 $("#create-skill").on('click',function(){
      // get the value of selected option
       var s = $("#skill").val();
           $(".answer-box").html("");
           for(var i=1; i<=s; i++)
           {
               var skillContent="Skill "+i+"<br /><input type='text' id='txt1"+i+"' name='txt1"+i+"' value='' placeholder='Please enter Skill' /><br />";
               $(".answer-box").append(skillContent);
           }

        })
//rest of the code

})

HTML

put separate value in each option

<select class="skill" id="skill">
        <option value="1">1</option>
        <option value="2">2</option>
        <option value="3">3</option>
        <option value="4">4</option>
 </select>
