Step 33 - Nesting error?

Tell us what’s happening:
I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong.

I nested the option element within the select element, and the select element within the label element. I wrote the text after the first label element and before the first select element, but I don’t get why it isn’t working.

Thanks

Your code so far

Challenge: Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 33

Link to the challenge:

Your solution quoted here works from my end. Please try one of the following steps to move forward.

Click on the “Restart Step” button and force a refresh of your page with CTRL + F5 then try to paste the code in again.

or - Try the step in incognito or private mode.

or - Disable any/all extensions that interface with the freeCodeCamp website (such as Dark Mode, Ad Blockers, or Spellcheckers), and set your browser zoom level to 100%. Both of these factors can cause tests to fail erroneously.

or - Ensure your browser is up-to-date or try a different browser.

I hope one of these will work for you.

Nope, none of the options worked.
:frowning:

okay, let’s go through each one with some details.

First, use your mouse to copy and paste the entire code (from top to bottom) and paste it here. (This is to check that you have the correct code first before we move on)

it’s okay if I update the “code so far” field?

better just paste it in your reply inside a code block like this
```
code in here
```

      <input type="submit" value="Submit" />
    </form>

</html>

so I have no idea what is going on but when I copy only the label element (and nothing in between), the code passes for me, but if I copy your whole block of code, it does not pass.

Can you try to restart the step, then copy exactly the label opening tag only
and the label closing tag only (or type them in again) Do not modify anything else?

nevermind, I just hitted the submit button again and it worked.

I refreshed the page several times until it worked tough

thank you very much for the quick response!!
