Unable to fill the box using css in JavaScipt

I am making a quiz website using javascript, and with the help of css I am trying to fill the box with color as the quiz goes on. However the code I am writing is not exactly working. any suggestions? I think the game.js class is unable to find progressBarFull. any sort of help will be appreciated.

//////game.js/////

const question = document.getElementById('question');
const choices = Array.from(document.getElementsByClassName('choice-text'));
const progressText = document.getElementById('progressText');
const scoreText = document.getElementById('score');
const progressBarFull = document.getElementById('progressBarFull');

let currentQuestion = {};
let acceptingAnswer = false;
let Score = 0 ;
let QuestionCounter = 0;
let AvailableQuestion = [];

let questions = [
    {
         question:"Inside which HTML element do we put JavaScript?",
         choice1: "<script>",
         choice2: "<javascript>",
         choice3: "<js>",
         choice4: "<scripting>",
         answer: 1
        },
        {
         question:"What is correct syntax for referreing to an external script called xxx.js",
         choice1: "<script href='xxx.js'>",
         choice2: "<script name='xxx.js'>",
         choice3: "<script src='xxx.js'>",
         choice4: "<script file='xxx.js'>",
         answer: 3
        },
        {
         question:"How do you write Hello in an alert box",
         choice1: "msgbox('Hello World')",
         choice2: "alertbox('Hello World')",
         choice3: "msg('Hello World')",
         choice4: "alert('Hello World')",
         answer: 4
        },
]


// Constants

const CORRECT_BONUS = 10;
const MAX_QUESTIONS = 3;
const INCORRECT = 10;

startgame = (  ) =>{
    QuestionCounter=0;
    Score=0;
    AvailableQuestion=[...questions];
    console.log(AvailableQuestion);
    getNewQuestion();
};

getNewQuestion =()=> {
    if(AvailableQuestion.length == 0 || question>= MAX_QUESTIONS){
        // Go to the endpage
        return window.location.assign('/end.html');
    }
    QuestionCounter++;
    progressText.innerText = `Question ${QuestionCounter} / ${MAX_QUESTIONS}`;

    
    // Update The ProgressBar
    progressBarFull.style.width = `${(QuestionCounter / MAX_QUESTIONS) * 100}
    %`
    console.log((QuestionCounter / MAX_QUESTIONS) * 100)


    const questionIndex = Math.floor(Math.random() * AvailableQuestion.length);
    currentQuestion = AvailableQuestion[questionIndex];
    question.innerText = currentQuestion.question;


    // foreach iterates through the choices
    choices.forEach( choice => {
        const number = choice.dataset['number']; 
        // getting number from data-number --- game.html
        choice.innerText = currentQuestion['choice' + number]
    })
    AvailableQuestion.splice(questionIndex, 1);

    acceptingAnswer = true
};

choices.forEach(choice => {
    choice.addEventListener("click", e=> {
        if(!acceptingAnswer) return;
        
        
        acceptingAnswer = false;
        const selectedChoice = e.target;
        const selectedAnswer = selectedChoice.dataset["number"];

        // const classToApply = 'incorrect';
        // if(selectedAnswer == currentQuestion.answer){
        //     classToApply = 'correct;'
        // }

        const classToApply = selectedAnswer == currentQuestion.answer ? 'correct' : 'incorrect';
        if (classToApply === 'correct'){
            incrementScore(CORRECT_BONUS)
        }
        else{
            decrementScore(INCORRECT)
        }
        // console.log(classToApply)

        selectedChoice.parentElement.classList.add(classToApply)
        setTimeout(() => {
            selectedChoice.parentElement.classList.remove(classToApply)
            getNewQuestion()
            
        }, 250);

       

        // console.log(selectedAnswer == currentQuestion.answer)
    })

})

incrementScore = num => {
    Score += num;
    scoreText.innerText = Score;

#progressBarFull{

>Solution :

Irrespective of other issues, the issue is that you are setting an invalid style on progressBarFull.

You have whitespace in your js:

progressBarFull.style.width = `${(QuestionCounter / MAX_QUESTIONS) * 100} %`

This results in setting an invalid style, which won’t even show up in the DOM in something like inspect. For a percentage (%) specifier, it needs to be right after the numeric value.
