Describe your issue in detail here.
I was asked to give the file a name attribute in each submittable element except radio, I really don’t have any idea.

Challenge: Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 41

Link to the challenge:

Submittable elements are ‘input’ elements with type attributes set to ‘file’ and ‘number’, and the ‘textarea’ element with ‘id’ set to ‘bio’. Give each of them a name attribute with a value of your choice.

The ‘select’ element (also submittable) has been already done in your code with the name attribute. Use this example as guidance.

<label name="file" for="first-name">Enter Your First Name: <input name="file" file="first-name" name="first-name" type="text" required /></label>

kindly check

Don’t add what isn’t required by the instruction.
Restart the step and add the code similar as follows.

<label for="smth">Text: <input id="smth" type="file" name="smth"/></label>
<label for="smth">Text: <input id="smth" type="number" name="smth"/></label>
<label for="smth">text:
          <textarea id ="bio" rows=" " cols=" " placeholder="Text..." name="smth"></textarea>

This is an example of what you have to do, not a final solution. Take time to analyze this code, because you will need it later in new challenges.
Pay attention to ‘type’ attributes. You should add ‘name’ attributes only for these ‘input’ elements, and for the ‘textarea’ element.
