Take a closer look at the present input fields and how their labels are connected to them, here is one of them:

 <input type="radio" id="large" value="large" name="shirt_size"><label for="large">Large</label>

The text to be displayed in the browser is located between the opening and closing label tags. However, the label is linked to the input by using the input's id ("large") as the value of the label's for-attribute.

Does that help you with the task?

Connecting label and input field this way improves usability because the input field is selected by clicking the label and also simplifies access for people using assistive technology such as screen readers.
