Hi all, I have this simple form which triggers a jquery function when a change happens, but how can I get the actual selectedindex value?

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('#form select').change(function() {

    //var strChosen = $(this).attr('id');
    var strChosen = $(this).attr('id');
		<form id="form">
<div><p>			Question 1: Name</p>
<input type="textfield" name="name" id="name">

<div> Question 2: Pet Type
	<select id="pet">
		<option value=""></option>
		<option value="Dog">Dog</option>
		<option value="Cat">Cat</option>

<div> Question 3: Dog Breed
	<select id="breed" name="breed">
				<option value=""></option>
		<option value="Bernese">Bernese</option>
		<option value="American Cocker Spaniel">American Cocker Spaniel</option>

<div> Question 4: Cat Breed
	<select id="catbreed">
				<option value=""></option>
		<option value="Black and White">Black and White</option>
		<option value="Tabby">Tabby</option>
