Lucia Shimwetheleni Hey Lucia, you're extremely close. Remove the "!" and you should have your solution. an <a href="#top">Go back to top of page</a> should work for you! Let me know if you have any trouble with it.

Hi Lucia Shimwetheleni

The top element should have the attribute id="top".

And your anchor element should have the attribute href="#top".

You just need to add this one to your anchor tag: href='#'
