Here it is.

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){

	function changeValue(value){
		$("select[name='choice2']").html("");
		for(var i = 1; i <= value; i++){
			$("select[name='choice2']").append('<option value="'+i+'">'+i+'</option>');
		}
	}
	
	changeValue($("select[name='choice1']").val());
	$("select[name='choice1']").change(function(){
		changeValue($(this).val())
	});
});
</script>
<select name="choice1">
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
<option value="4">4</option>
<option value="5">5</option>
<option value="6">6</option>
<select>

<select name="choice2">

</select>

  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
