Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 41

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
This step has really got me confused. I get the name attribute, but I don’t get where it wants the name attribute used. Is the name attribute that they are wanting different from the name that was used in the input tags? For example, the first name box. In the input it has a name=“first-name”, is that not a unique name? Does it need to be something different from that? And where should this unique name be inserted in the code?

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

Link to the challenge:

The “submittable” elements are two input elements with the type attribute set to ‘number’ and ‘file’, ‘select’ element and ‘textarea’ element.
Give to each ‘name’ attribute value by your will, for example:

name="1" 

and change the number for each attribute or add some values with understandable meanings instead of numbers.

Thanks for the help, that was way more painful than it needed to be. lol
