Can't complete Check Radio Buttons and Checkboxes by Default?

Tell us what’s happening:
So the tasks are as follows:
Your first radio button on your form should be checked by default.

Your first checkbox on your form should be checked by default.

You should not change the inner text of the Indoor label.

You should not change the inner text of the Loving label.

But this is contradictory? I cannot set those first checkboxes and radio buttons to checked without changing the inner text of them?

  **Your code so far**

Challenge: Check Radio Buttons and Checkboxes by Default

Link to the challenge:

No, the “inner text” is the text, the letters on the screen after the checkbox. Whether or not the box is checked. Yes, you will have to change the code, but you don’t want to change the text that displays on the screen. For example, in the first checkbox, the inner text is “Indoor”. Don’t change that. Just add the attribute that makes it default to checked.

Ah I see, I think it was just glitching or not working for me as I had done it correctly, but still was saying i had changed the inner text, even though I hadn’t touched it

Yeah, a lot of people have had an issue with this challenge. I don’t know if there is a specific browser extension that is causing a problem.
