You’ve added too much to the inputs. The only thing you need to add to the inputs is the id attribute, which you have done correctly. Then you need to link them to the label text. Technically, they already are linked since the input is nested inside the label element. But it is still a best practice to use the for attribute to link them. Remember, the for attribute points to the id of the input. So which element do you think you should add the for attribute to?

I figured it out. Thanks so much!
