De Step 61

In order to make a checkbox checked or 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.scribe your issue in detail here.

Implement this :point_up_2: hint and your code will pass.

Remove the name attribute, it’s not required.

Remember, the instruction says;

But you are adding the checked attribute to all the inputs, instead of the first input element.

ayo I’m getting confused

I am sorry you are getting confused.
See what you will do now.
Hit the “Reset” button below the “Check Your Code” button to start this particular challenge afresh.

Then, add the checked attribute to the first radio and first check box input elements.
Ensure there is space between the checked attribute and other attributes.
Note: You are NOT required to add any value to the checked attribute, just the word “checked” is needed.

I hope this will solve the issue.
Happy coding…

problem solved. thank you.
