CSS CSS Foundations Advanced Selectors UI Element States Pseudo-Classes

Advanced selector question code challenge

The code challenge is this:

Now, create an attribute selector that targets input elements with a type value of radio. In the same selector, add the :checked pseudo class, then use a combinator to target the label that is an immediate sibling of a radio button. Set the color to blue and the font weight to bold.

my code is:

input [style="radio"] :checked + label { color:blue; font-weight:bold; }

What am I doing wrong?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>UI Element States Pseudo-Classes</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">
            <input type="text">
            <input type="text" disabled>
                <input name="radio" id="radio1" type="radio"><label for="radio1">Option 1</label>
                <input name="radio" id="radio2" type="radio"><label for="radio2">Option 2</label>
            <input type="submit" value="Submit">
/* Write your CSS code below */

:disabled {background:lightgray;}

input [style="radio"] :checked + label {

I think you need to use type="radio" instead of style="radio". Try this:

:disabled {
  background: lightgray;

input[type="radio"]:checked + label {
  color: blue;
  font-weight: bold;
