Unable to clear this button task. Not sure why?

The challenge says: add a submit button with the text - Place order.

This is my code:

<form action="index.html" method="post"> <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1> <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> <button type="submit">Place Order</button> </form>

But it is not working. Can someone tell me what am I doing wrong?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <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>
        <button type="submit">Place Order</button>
    </form>

  </body>
</html>

Hi smriti,

You're close! You just need to close the select tag before you write the code for the button.

</select>
        <button type="submit">Place Order</button>

Hope this helps!
