This is what I have so far but the data attributes are not added. what am I doing wrong
$('select[name="slc_pc"]')
  .append($('<option />')  // Create new <option> element
    .val('Hello')            // Set value as "Hello"
    .text('Hello')           // Set textContent as "Hello"
    .prop('selected', true)  // Mark it selected
    .data({                  // Set multiple data-* attributes
      token: 'abc'
    })
  );
