having trouble with challenge task...

Challenge Task 2 of 4 Add the following options to the select menu: Red, Yellow, Purple, Blue, Green, and Orange. Each option should have a value attribute. Set each value attribute to the same color name, but in all lowercase. Example: value="blue"

I keep getting a X Bummer message: you dont seem to have <option> element within the <select> element... but im pretty sure I do, or maybe I am not seeing something right. Please Help I have been stuck on this for two days... Thanks.

There seems to be an extra "optgroup" element between the "select" and the "option" elements. But the instructions asked for the "option" elements to be added directly to the "select".

Remove the stray "optgroup" and you should pass the challenge.
