I'm confused

It says: You need to add a label for the 'color' select element. I think I did

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <select id = "color" name = "shirt_color">
        <optgroup label="shirt-color">Shirt Color:</optgroup>
        <option value="red">Red</option>
        <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
        <option value="purple">Purple</option>
        <option value="blue">Blue</option>
        <option value="green">Green</option>
        <option value="orange">Orange</option>
      </select>
    </form>

  </body>
</html>

The task 3 instructions say: Add a label element to the select menu with the text "Shirt Color:", but it looks like you added an optgroup element instead.

A label element would look like this and be placed just before the select:

      <label for="color">Shirt Color:</label>
