I created the following HTML code with ul and list elements:
   <li onclick="extend(this,leo(5));">List One</li>
   <li onclick="extend(this,leo(5));">List Two</li>
   <li onclick="extend(this,leo(3));">List Three</li>

I added an onclick event in each list so to append at each lof them a new ul list with preffered list numbers as you can see (5-5-and 3)
The js code that i created is this:

var newList=document.createElement('ul');

function leo(numberList){
  for(var i=1;i<=numberList;i++){
  var list=document.createElement('li');
  list.innerHTML='This is a new list item';  
  return newList;


function event(e){

function extend(arg,leo){  


The problem is that wherever i click a list element then the function append the past and the new list created elements into the last clicked element.
Img of the first list click:
first clickImg of the second click:
second clickAnd go on...
