You are missing a single quote beside the warning, for example: alert('Warning!')

Heres the answer if you really don't know:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
  <script>
    alert('Warning!');
  </script>
</body>
</html>

While this might work here, be aware that some challenges are more picky about literal strings and changing case and/or omitting punctuation might cause the code to fail.

It looks like you're missing the opening quote mark to match the closing one that is already there.
