So your select should be nested in a label element. Remember nesting is when you add things between the element opening and closing tag. The label element will have the text of How did you hear about us?
I recommend that you reset your code and try again.
Order of code:

label opening tag with instructed text
select opening tag
option elements
select closing tag
label closing tag

i reset it but i am taking same error :frowning:

Okay, if you did edit it, then reset it again. Then before your select opening tag add a label opening tag. And after your select closing tag add a label closing tag.
And then in-between your label opening tag and your select opening tag, add the text How did you hear about us? Then click the Check your code button.
If you are still struggling, please post your updated code here, so that we can assist.

codesame thing i did. still not working

You are not supposed to create a new select. Reset your code again.
Then nest the existing select in a label element. This is your existing select:

Then after your label opening tag add the text How did you hear about us?

that is right! thank you so much, it worked :slight_smile: :heart_decoration:
