Please Tell us what’s happening in your own words.

Learning to describe problems is hard, but it is an important part of learning how to code.

Also, the more you say, the more we can help!

Hi, first of all, let me say that I have just started learning and I am a few lessons ahead of you. I hope I don’t give the wrong answer.

In this step, we assign a value to each option in the dropdown menu we have created and inform the server which option the user has selected when the user presses the submit button.

but as far as I can see, you have only assigned the value “1-4” to the first option and the other options have no value. in this way, when one of the other 4 options is selected, no value is transmitted to the server. i don’t want to write the answer explicitly, but i can say that you need to assign a value to each option in a proper and sequential order.

Hello!
I believe the options are for the first option value is "" , and the other four should have the option values of the numbers to meet their place on the list 1, 2, 3, 4 or as you stated sequential order, which is in the instructions.
I am guessing based on the information you provided.

Please post the complete code for the step you are currently on using the </> at the top of this text area box when asking a question?
This allows for direct and correct responses to your questions by the community!

Keep moving forward on your coding path. :slight_smile:

Hi as per the question you have add value to option value in an ascending order
option value=“”
option value=“1”
and so on…

Well try :ok_hand: buddy but you need to add it in ascending order from top to below:

value=""
value="1"
This how you can do it hope you understand :blush:
