HTML HTML Forms Choosing Options Create Radio Buttons

Task 3

On task 3 I get the following error:

"You need to add a <label> element within the <form> element, right before the first radio button."

When I look at my code I feel that this is EXACTLY what I am doing. It's driving me insane.

Thanks in advance for the help.

You're working inside the select menu. Move all the inputs and the label after the select closing tag and you'll be good.
