Try this:
$(document).ready(function() {
 $('input[type=text]').val('');
 $('#f').change(function() {
  var selected = $('#f select option:selected');
  if (selected.length === selected.filter('[value=""]').length ) {
   alert( 'The value of all selects are empty' );
  }
  else alert( 'At least one select has a value that is not empty' );
 });
});
