Radio Buttons-HTML

Tell us what’s happening:
I’m currently working on coding challenge 22," Basic HTML and HTML5: Create a Set of Radio Buttons," and I can’t figure out how to fix the code. The first X bullet point says that I need to give both radio buttons the name attribute of indoor-outdoor. The second X bullet point says each of my two radio elements should be nested in their own radio element. I’d much appreciate some help with this lol. I’m a beginner.

Your code so far


<h2>CatPhotoApp</h2>
<main>
  <p>Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>
  
  <a href="#"><img src="https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>
  
  <p>Things cats love:</p>
  <ul>
    <li>cat nip</li>
    <li>laser pointers</li>
    <li>lasagna</li>
  </ul>
  <p>Top 3 things cats hate:</p>
  <ol>
    <li>flea treatment</li>
    <li>thunder</li>
    <li>other cats</li>
  </ol>
  <form action="/submit-cat-photo">
  <input id="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">
  <label for="indoor">Indoor</label>
  <input id="outdoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">
  <label for="outdoor">Outdoor</label>
  
    <input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
    <button type="submit">Submit</button>
  </form>
</main>

Hi, what the first bullet point is trying to point out is that your input tags should be wrapped within the label tags like so:

<label for="indoor">
      <input id="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">indoor
    </label>
    <label for="indoor">
      <input id="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">outdoor
    </label>

this code should solve both problems.
PS: please read the explanation in the left panel and follow the example presented therein.
Hope this helps.

It should be like this

    <label for="indoor">
      <input id="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">Indoor
    </label>

    <label for="outdoor">
      <input id="outdoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">Outdoor
    </label>
