Survey Form - Build a Survey Form

Tell us what’s happening:
So it says I have everything correct except the textarea. It keeps saying to have at least one textarea that’s a descendant of the #survey-form. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong.

Your code so far

Challenge: Survey Form - Build a Survey Form

Link to the challenge:

The ‘textarea’ is an html element, just like ‘label’ element. It has the opening and closing tags <textarea></textarea>.

You have added the ‘input’ element with type set to the value of “textarea”. This is not the proper usage of this element.
