Learn HTML by Building a Cat Photo App - Step 61

Tell us what’s happening:
Hi guys I’m sorry that I’m posting so much but I need help, it says here
To make a checkbox checked or a radio button selected by default, you need to add the checked attribute to it. There’s no need to set a value to the checked attribute. Instead, just add the word checked to the input element, making sure there is space between it and other attributes.

Make the first radio button and the first checkbox selected by default.

and I don’t know what to do.

Link to the challenge:

Add the attribute ‘checked’ (the word) to the first input element with the ‘type’ attribute set to the value of “radio”. Do the same for the first ‘input’ element with the ‘type’ attribute set to the value of “checkbox”:

<input type="radio" ... attribute>
<input type="checkbox" ... attribute>

This is guidance.
