Survey Form - Build a Survey Form

(second time posting this to try and get any help…any help at all is appreciated as I’m getting discouraged)

I cannot complete the survey form assignment. I cannot pass the following problem:
You should have a select field with an id of dropdown .

I have reviewed other people’s issues and have tried everything I can think of. Can anyone tell me if I’m doing something wrong or if the assignment is bugged?

Also…does anyone know how to delete all the progress on just 1 assignment. The only thing I haven’t tried (bc I don’t know how) is erasing my survey form assignment totally and trying it again.

  **Your code so far**

Challenge: Survey Form - Build a Survey Form

Link to the challenge:

I think that the problem is that you have two elements (an input and a select) with the id value of “dropdown”.

Remember that id values have to be unique.

You can run your html through a validator to pick up this kind of problem.

Thank you. I swear I read through the code like 4 times and didn’t catch that input. Thanks for the validator advice! Just bookmarked that for the future.

This is the kind of small mistake that’s really difficult to spot.
So a validator can be a real life-saver. :smiley:

It’s definitely worth getting into the habit of using it to check your code for syntax errors.
