You're getting close, but:

  • you should not modify the provided code (leave the parameter name as "e")
  • the property "previousELementSibling" should be spelled "previousElementSibling" (with lower-case "l")
  • you won't need to assign "button" or reference the parent node (the button isn't the parent anyway)
  • you still need to set the class name on the paragraph to "highlight"
