I´m having troubles with the course in general, but I´m having a lot of trouble passing through this tasks although it seems easy, is just not working.

var body = document.body; var newParagraph = document.createElement("p"); var pleaseEnableParagraph = document.querySelector("#please_enable");

//Remove "Please Enable JavaScript2" paragraph

pleaseEnableParagraph.removeChild("p");

//Append new paragaph to document

app.js
var body = document.body;
var newParagraph = document.createElement("p");
var pleaseEnableParagraph = document.querySelector("#please_enable");

//Remove "Please Enable JavaScript2" paragraph



//Append new paragaph to document
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <body>
    <p id="please_enable">Please Enable JavaScript</p>

    <script src="app.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

Hi,

The following code below will help you to pass the task:

//Remove paragraph from document

body.removeChild(pleaseEnableParagraph);

//Append new paragaph to document

body.appendChild(newParagraph);

Happy coding!
