When you want to turn text into a link, you should not duplicate the text. Simply wrap the anchor tags around relevant portion of the existing text instead.

I’m sorry but I don’t quite follow, should I remove the "terms and conditions " between the a tag? or…?

You need anchor opening and closing tags around existing terms and conditions text you have in your code.

This bit of code should be inside your label element, replacing the text ‘terms and conditions’ which is already there:

<a href="https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/terms-of-service/">terms and conditions</a>
