Tell us what’s happening:

Hi, I keep getting the 2 following errors, what am I doing wrong, I can’t figure it out:

  1. Give your radio buttons the name attribute of indoor-outdoor .
  2. Each of your two radio button elements should be nested in its own label element.

Each of your two radio button elements should be nested in its own label element.

To nest an element in html you put it inside of another element.

<label><input></label>

Can you please show me what I’m doing wrong because I still can’t figure it out.

<input id="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">
  <label for="indoor">Indoor</label>
  <input id="outdoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">
  <label for="outdoor">Outdoor</label>
<label>
<input id="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">Indoor
</label>
<label>
<input id="outdoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">Outdoor
</label>

cristianacmc gives the solution above.

Note how they put the <input id="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">Indoor inside of the <label> and </label> tags.

That means that: <input> is nested inside of it’s own <label> element, as your instructions request:

  1. Each of your two radio button elements should be nested in its own label element.

Hope this helps clarify :slight_smile:
