A Radio Button can be used in forms to allow users to select a single option from multiple options rolled out by admins. Here is how you can add and customize a radio button with Forms.

On the right side of the tab, there are some important Basic options which are given below:
- Element Label: This is the text that users will see on the form of the input field. You can put any text here that helps to understand the purpose of that field.
- Label Placement: Determine the placement of the label, that you set previously, with respect to the input field. The available options are ‘Top’, ‘Left’, ‘Right’, and ‘Default’. All of those are self-explanatory except the ‘Default’. What it means is, that it will represent your global label placement settings.
