Hi,

You can do that using JavaScript. Check the below code -

 <select id="ddl">
        <option>N/A</option>
        <option>1</option>
        <option>2</option>
        <option>3</option>
        <option>4</option>
        <option>5</option>
    </select>
    <span id="msg"></span>

    <script type="text/javascript">
        window.addEventListener("change",OnChange,true);
        
        function OnChange() {
            var ddl = document.getElementById('ddl');
            switch (ddl.selectedIndex) {
                case 1:
                    document.getElementById("msg").innerHTML = "superficial or negligible damage";
                    break;
                case 2:
                    document.getElementById("msg").innerHTML = "Minor damage";
                    break;
                case 3:
                    document.getElementById("msg").innerHTML = "significant damage";
                    break;
                case 4:
                    document.getElementById("msg").innerHTML = "Repairable damage";
                    break;
                case 5:
                    document.getElementById("msg").innerHTML = "Non-Repairable damage";
                    break;
                default:
                    document.getElementById("msg").innerHTML = "";
                    break;
            }
           
        }
    </script>
