Un-selecting radio buttons

Hi,

I am working on a form for a project and for some reason I am unable to un-select my radio buttons. I am wondering why this is happening and what to do to fix the issue. Is this a common problem?

Thanks-

Yes, that's the basic paradigm of radio buttons. They weren't meant to be left unselected, so once you choose an option, you have to choose one of the options. It is possible to create a "clear" button to unselect them using javascript if you like.
