<html lang="en">

<title>Dynamically Generate Select Dropdowns</title>
        <option selected="selected">Choose one</option>
        // A sample product array
        $products = array("Mobile", "Laptop", "Tablet", "Camera");
        // Iterating through the product array
        foreach($products as $item){
        <option value="<?php echo strtolower($item); ?>"><?php echo $item; ?></option>
    <input type="submit" value="Submit">
