Checking radio buttons and and checkboxes by default

Hello everyone**
The task is to set my first radio button and checkbox to mark as checked by default, without changing the inner text of the Indoor label. While performing this task, I had changed the inner text of the “indoor” label by error. Although I have corrected this error, and both the radio button and the checkbox now mark as checked by default, the test running still says " You should not change the inner text of the Indoor label", and it won’t let me proceed to the next task. I am beginning to find coding exciting and I could use some help to keep the fire burning. Thanks :smiling_face:

Have you tried clicking the reset button and redoing the challenge? It’s probably an issue and will be fixed.

Well, this is not how it was, you need to make it match the other labels
