I think he just wants you to add a label tag to the top of the radio buttons. <label>Shirt Size</label>

just my thoughts...

You look to have added the radio buttons within the select whereas they should appear after the closing select tag.

The challenge is asking for you to Add a label above the radio button group that says "Shirt Size:". Don't associate it with any specific element..

Based on that, up to that point your code (from the closing select downwards) should look like this:

      <label>Shirt Size:</label>
      <input type="radio" id="small" name="shirt_size" value="small">
      <input type="radio" id="medium" name="shirt_size" value="medium">
      <input type="radio" id="large" name="shirt_size" value="large">
      <button type="submit">Place Order</button>

Hope that helps :)


thanx Rich i got it
