<select> how to get id of selected item?

Hello experts!

I have <select> list populated dynamically:

<select id="feat1" name="feat1" title="feat1">
@foreach (var p in featQuery)
  counter=counter + 1;
  <option id="@counter">@p.Name</option>

How can I retrieve id number of option selected by user?

To get a option I use:

value = Request.Form["feat1"];

But I do not need string, I need id here.

Thank you
