Am I doing it correctly?

I’m trying to complete this. Is my solution correct? I also don’t understand the instructions that much. Thanks!

app.js
var contentDiv = document.getElementById('content');
var newParagraph = document.getElementsByTagName('p');
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    </head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <body>
        <div id="content">
            <p>paragraph<p>
        </div>
        <script src="app.js"></script>
    </body>
</html>

Hey Embie,

Looking at your code, what you have done is created p element inside index.html file and selected by its tag name in app.js file.

But in the challenge, it is asking you to dynamically create a p element and assign it to the newParagraph variable.

var newParagraph = document.createElement('p');

Hope this helps!!
