I am trying to figure out this question. {Add a label element to the select menu with the text "Shirt Color:"}

4 Answers

Since the label is for the select element place the code just before that.

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

Note: The for attribute has been set to "color" which is the id of the select element.

label is a separate element with it's own tags. It has a 'for' attribute which allows you to bind the label to another element. You can read about it here
