can't understand this question? can anyone help me?

This is question asked => Finally, we need the form to submit a unique identifier for the order to the process.php file. We need to be able to access that value in an order_id element of the $_POST array, like this: $_POST["order_id"]. For this particular order, the order ID should be 7546. We don't want this value displayed in the browser, though. What do we need to add to the form? (Hint: We need to add a new HTML element with three attributes.)

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Ye Olde Ice Cream Shoppe</title>
</head>
<body>

    <p>Your order has been created. What flavor of ice cream would you like to add to it?</p>

    <form action="process.php" method="post">

        <label for="flavor">Flavor</label>
        <select name="flavor" id="flavor">
            <option value="">&#8212; Select &#8212;</option>
            <option value="Vanilla">Vanilla</option>
            <option value="Chocolate">Chocolate</option>
            <option value="Strawberry">Strawberry</option>
            <option value="Cookie Dough">Cookie Dough</option>
        </select>

        <input type="submit" value="Update Order">

    </form>

</body>
</html>

Try taking a look at the W3Schools page for hidden inputs. The rest of your code looks great, so hopefully that'll help point you in the right direction. If you still find yourself stuck though, let me know and we can walk through a solution.

Nice work, and happy coding!
