Hi there! I'm not sure exactly what happened here or if something changed between the first 2 steps and now. Currently, your radio boxes reside inside the <select> group, but they were meant to be put after the ending </select> tag. Also, each one of your <input> tags has a closing </input>, but the input element is self-closing meaning that it has no ending tags, so you will also need to remove the </input>s.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

This will fix the problem. You forgot to put a <label> element after each radio button, with a for attribute that matches the id of the radio button. Also between the opening and closing label tags you have to type what will be displayed on the label e.g. <label>small</label>. Here is the code. Good luck!


<label>Shirt Size:</label>
<input type="radio" id="small" value="size-small" name="shirt_size"></input>
<label for="small">small<label>
<input type="radio" id="medium" value="size-medium" name="shirt_size"></input>
<label for="medium">medium</label>
<input type="radio" id="large" value="size-large" name="shirt_size"></input>
<label for="large">large</label>

Figured it out thanks, I had to put the inputs at the bottom of the select radio group.
