Later on, after you learned about form data submission you will understand that 'name' attribute is used as key, and 'value' is used as data. These pairs of a key-value pair are sent to back-end code for data processing in such format "key=value". So if you submit the form where that radio button was placed in, the information sent to back-end machine may look like "select=yes" And it's a good idea to use meaningful word when you set 'name' attribute for an element.
