  1. First, we write <! DOCTYPE html> which we used as an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML file is written in.
  2. Secondly, the <html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of an HTML document.
  3. As above now <head> tag is used to contain information about web page. In this tag a <title> tag is used which helps us to specify a webpage title. Both <head> and <title> tags are Paired tags. So, both have </head> and </title> ending tags respectively.
  4. Thirdly, <body> tag is used to define the webpage body. All the contents to show on website are written here. Hence in body tag, first we create a select tag and puts option under this.
  5. This is used to get month from user, user can select any month from these what he wants to choose.
  6. After this there is another select in which option are used again and in option we specify some years.
  7. You are able to make more or less years with the help of option tags as you want to decide limit for user. Whereas the months may remain same.
  8. At last, the <body> and <html> tags are closed with </body> and </html> respectively.
