(Survey form) problems solving user story #14,15,16

Hello everyone. Imma be real and say that I have no idea on how to solve user story #14,15, or 16. Well I have ideas that I’ve tried, but obviously they aren’t working. Here’s the link to my pen.

Please let me know what im doing wrong, thanks!

Hello there, @arathgomez

Looking at the code I see some close tags missing and a lot of extra to be removed, resolve and your code will be valid. In the image, you will see a tool to organize your code .

@arathgomez, to help make spotting your typo’s in codepen easier I’d suggest switching the Syntax Highlighting on Codepen to help catch errors. Go to your Codepen profile settings (not the setting for the pen, but for your profile). Switch the Syntax Highlighting to Oceanic Dark and save the setting. Go back to the pen and make sure your new setting is working. The code highlighting will be using different colors. Errors will now be marked in red.

A couple of additional suggestions;

  1. Make the project from scratch, with your own code, style and content. Don’t take code from the sample project.
  • The projects are not just another challenge. Each one is meant to be a significant step in your progress. Every project you do will require research, planning, trial and error, and strengthening your skills beyond what you gain from the incremental challenges.
  • The hardest part of coding is looking at a problem and coming up with a plan to solve that problem. Starting out by looking at someone else’s code completely bypasses that step.
  1. When a test fails, click the red button to see which test(s) are failing and text to help you correct the issue.
  • Be sure and read more than just the first line of the failing message. The ability to read and comprehend error messages is a skill you’ll need to acquire as a developer. Ask questions on what you don’t understand.

Sorry for the late response, but thank you again for pointing out errors. I got the the code to work!

Got it, for the next project I will try to come up with my own solutions. It’s just that it can be a bit difficult but I know that In order to actaully improve I have to analyize and come up with my own ideas. Also thank you for the Syntax Highlighting suggestion, it really helped!
