Need HTML Select ID & Value?

I'm using this jquery to find the selected option of ten select controls. It cannot return both ID & Value.

$("#form1 select option:selected").each(function ()
{                                    
       var value = $(this).val();
       var id = $(this).attr("id");
       
       alert(id);
       alert(val); //works
});


[example]
    <select class="form-control" id="number" name="number">
    <option>Any</option>
    <option>Plural</option>
    <option>Singular</option>
    </select>

I am not positive, about the complete applications, but if your looking to get value and text for each option of select box.

Following simple code should work. This has no external dependencies. Pure JavaScript

<select id="MySelect">
<option value="1">test1</option>
<option value="2" selected="selected">test2</option>
<option value="3">test3</option>
</select>

var e = document.getElementById("MySelect");

for (var ix=0; ix < e.options.length; ix++) {
    var optText = e.options[ix].text;
    var optValue = e.options[ix].value;
    if (ix == e.selectedIndex) {
        alert ("\nSelected Option Value:" + optValue + "\nText: " + optText);  
    }
    else {
        alert ("\nOption  Value:" + optValue + "\nText: " + optText);  
    }
}
