At first glance, it looks like you omitted the closing "</select>" tag after the last option.

Generally speaking, you shouldn't use h1 tags in forms, as legend tags are more suitable and follow the proper styling of a form.

The h1 is actually part of the code the challenge gives you to start with. It's not the user's choice.
