    1. Hi, it was not working because the jQuery was not loaded. Please check the demo now it’s working. You could’ve tested it simply by copy-pasting the entire code and save it as an HTML file in your local.

  1. you have to use .prop instead of .attr

    var checkboxgroup = “input:checkbox[name='”+$(this).attr(“name”)+”‘]”;
    $(checkboxgroup).prop (“checked”,false);
    $(this).prop (“checked”,true);
