I think you forgot the closing </select> tag.

Also, you should always use a legend within a fieldset.

thank you bbsmooth! Ive been struggling with this for hours lol. :woman_facepalming: can you also help me why the email and age has no space even though I have a <div> tag? thank you very much

The div element does not have any padding/margins by default, so wrapping them in a div will not add space. The reason you have some space between Name and Email but not Email and Age is because you don’t have a closing </form> tag and the browser is trying its best to add it for you automatically and it is adding it in the wrong spot. You need to add that closing tag all the way down to the end of your form, after all the input elements and submit button. You also need to get rid of the closing </div> after the first label (or add an opening <div> before the it). Once you make these fixes then you will see that even the Name and Email inputs have now whitespace between them.

Adding whitespace is the job of CSS.
