My submit button is placed with the form but not working?

I'm not sure what I am doing wrong or missing, unless this is a bug.

Hi there! You're doing terrific, but you forgot one tiny thing. You started your <select> menu and added all the options, but you forgot to close your select menu. Somewhere there needs to be a </select>.

I think you can get it with this hint, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:
