Hi Ricard,

Before anyone gives the answer away I recommend reviewing the course videos on how to create a select menu.

You could also have a look at the documentation on MDN here which may be of help to you..


If you are still having issues let me know and I will try to help you further.

Hello Ricard, <option> must be inside the <select></select> elements like this : <select> <option>Red</option> <option>Yellow</option> <option>Purple</option> <option>etc</option> </select>

Then the ID attribute shoulder better in lowercase and finally the values of id and name must be the same.
