CSS CSS Foundations Advanced Selectors UI Element States Pseudo-Classes

radio button

Hi, I am taking a code challenge to change color and font-weight to bold on the radio button. It said wrong.

Did my code have problems?


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>UI Element States Pseudo-Classes</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">
            <input type="text">
            <input type="text" disabled>
                <input name="radio" id="radio1" type="radio"><label for="radio1">Option 1</label>
                <input name="radio" id="radio2" type="radio"><label for="radio2">Option 2</label>
            <input type="submit" value="Submit">
/* Write your CSS code below */

:disabled {
  background-color: lightgray;

input[type="radio"]: checked+label {
  color: blue;
  font-weight: bold;

Remove your space between the colon and 'checked':

input[type="radio"]: checked+label {


input[type="radio"]:checked+label {

That should sort it :)


EDIT: I think Wayne Priestley beat me to that one :)

Hey Edwin,

Your answer is correct, you just have a unwanted space between : checked+label, remove the space and you'll pass


Hope this helps.

Thank you,
