var quiz = [
    { stepName: "Check Oil", frequency: "1 / Shift", stepDescription: "Verify the presence of spilled oil", image: "https://cdn.iconscout.com/icon/free/png-512/schedule-maintenance-1575170-1331504.png", choices: ["OK", "NOK", "N/A"], savedAnswer: "" },

];

var index = 0;

function parseQuiz() {
    for (var i = 0; quiz.length > i; i++) {
        creatingAnswers(quiz[index].choices[i]);
        setQuizToDiv(quiz[index].stepName, quiz[index].frequency, quiz[index].stepDescription, quiz[index].image);
    }
}

function setQuizToDiv(stepName, frequency, stepDescription, image) {
    $(".quiz-container").html('');
    var quizHtml;
    if (image != "") {
        quizHtml = `
        <div class="step-name">
            ${stepName}
        </div>
        <div class="frequency">
           Frequency: ${frequency}
        </div>
        <div class="step-desc">
           ${stepDescription}
        </div>
        <div class="step-image">
        <div id="overlay"></div>
        <img class="main-img" src="${image}" />
        </div>`;
    } else {
        quizHtml = `
        <div class="step-name">
            ${stepName}
        </div>
        <div class="frequency">
           Frequency: ${frequency}
        </div>
        <div class="step-desc">
           ${stepDescription}
        </div>
        <div class="separation-div"></div>
        `;
    }

    $(".quiz-container").append(quizHtml);
}

function creatingAnswers(choises) {
    if (choises != undefined) {
        var answers = `<button class="btn next-btn">${choises}</button>`
        $(".answ-container").append(answers);
    }
}

parseQuiz();

$(".quiz-container").on("click", ".main-img", function () {
    $('#overlay')
        .css({ backgroundImage: `url(${this.src})` })
        .addClass('open')
        .one('click', function () { $(this).removeClass('open'); });
});

$(".answ-container").on("click", ".next-btn", function () {
    let indexData = index + 1;
    let arrayData = quiz.length - 1;
    if (indexData <= arrayData) {
        quiz[index].savedAnswer = $(this).text();
        index++;
        $(".answ-container").html("");
        parseQuiz();
        navButton();
    }
});

HTML:

<div class="quiz-container"></div>
<div class="answ-container"></div>

So i try to change bg color in this func

$(".answ-container").on("click", ".next-btn", function () {

To add this code:

$(this).css("background-color","red")

But this is not working for me. So on the click i want to change bg of button, and when i go to the nex question previus button which i colored is saved.

Answer

if I answer in first question OK, and I go to next one, but I make mistake in prev question I will have possibility to change mind, for this I create button previus[sic], when user tap on prev, it's going to prev question and should show previus[sic] answer

In creatingAnswers check against savedAnswer for the current question

if (quiz[index].savedAnswer == choises)

and do your thing (eg add a class) - in the updated fiddle (below) I've swapped around the append to appendTo to get the jquery obj being added, giving:

function creatingAnswers(choises) {
    if (choises != undefined) {
        var answers = `<button class="btn next-btn">${choises}</button>`
        var ans = $(answers).appendTo(".answ-container");
        if (quiz[index].savedAnswer == choises) {
            ans.addClass("userchoice");
        }
    }
}

There's also an earlier bug (discussed in the comments) which loops the quiz count instead of the answer count - this is also updated in the fiddle.
