Hi Kim,

You've got the right idea, but are missing some detail.

Here, we're asked to prepend '<input type="checkbox"/>' you've written code to prepend 'input type="checkbox'. Add the missing doublequotes and opening and closing portions of the HTML tag and you'll pass this challenge.

Hey, Kim.

Pay close attention to the wording in the instructions. It says to:

... add an '<input type="checkbox"/>' ...

Your code differs from this.

thank you eric and rich
