There's a reason why Googling "radio button" on yields 112
hits. This is a recurring toughie. My own opinion is, you don't need
either term.

Let's say you have three radio buttons: All, Some, and None. Your user
instruction is:

"To refeather all of the ducks, click All."


"When you click Some, three ceiling tiles crumble to the floor."


"Do not click None at this time. If you click None, your data will be
eaten by a Pomeranian."
