Hi

Radio buttons are used in web forms or other applications. They are used where you have two or more choices and you have to select only one among them. They are circles and you have to choose one circle by keyboard or mouse to make your choice.

For example:-

You are asked that your birth year is :-

·         1989

·         1990

·         1991

All three options are followed by radio buttons and you have to make a choice this is clear that you can have only one birth year. So  you choose one among them.

A radio button is a graphical user interface element or simply an option button that was created in place of a check box. I is round like a button and when it is not selected it usually is white. Adjacent to the button is a description of the option.

 
Unlike the check box, a radio button is used on inquiries that would require a user to choose one of the answers provided or displayed. Once selected, the other buttons are then "grayed-out" or disabled.
 
In order to use it, you just select an option by hovering your mouse and clicking on the selected button or by using a keyboard shortcut.
 
Radio buttons are replacing check boxes because it is used when there is a list of more than two options that is mutually exclusive and the user only needs to pick one choice or option.
