When asking a question, it is important to fill out this form so that individuals looking to assist you know how to best assist you.

The directions say

“Make the first radio button and the first checkbox selected by default.”

It looks like you havent added the checked attribute to the checkbox yet

Thank you for the advise and I do have added the checked attribute in the first checkbox

Did you just add the checked and passed the challenge, or are you still stuck? Because in this code you have not added checked

It said “your first radio button, with the id set to indoor , should have the checked attribute.” Can you please tell me my error? I have add checked in that line

The hint may not be the best, but I have already pointed your biggest problem. The challenge requirements ask you to add checked to the radio button and the first checkbox. As I showed in my last reply, you have not added checked to the the checkbox yet
