Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 30

Tell us what’s happening:
I’m not sure how to close the anchor. The way code is set up currently I’m able to make the link live however when I use a closing anchor it messes up the code. That makes me think the anchor is self-closing. The error I am receiving is that " You should use an element to link to the terms and conditions". This leads me to believe I’ve either put code in the wrong place or I need two anchors. Is my thought process in the right place?

Your code so far

Challenge: Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 30

Link to the challenge:

The anchor (a) element is not self-closing because you can put content inside of it. So it always needs both an opening and closing tag.

You only want to make the words terms and conditions a link. You are attempting to make the input and all of the text after it a link.
