{
"name": "RushaliB",
"seat" : "125634",
"perc": "69%"
}

<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta content="text/html;charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type">
<meta content="utf-8" http-equiv="encoding">
<head>
<title>the title</title>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
   $(document).ready(function() {
      $("button").click(function(event){
          $.getJSON("result.json", function(jd) {
             $("div").html('<p> Name: ' + jd.name + '</p>');
             $("div").append('<p>Seat No : ' + jd.seat+ '</p>');
             $("div").append('<p>Percentage: ' + jd.perc+ '</p>');
          });
      });
   });
</script>
</head>
<body>
   <div>
