Hey Lalit,

The code you have written is almost correct, just a few corrections need to be made. <label> should be above the <select> tag and after for attribute add = sign. It should work fine after these changes.

Final outcome:

<label for="color">Shirt Color:</label>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color">
         <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>
