Challenge Question 4 "Inside your body element, put in paragraph that says, "My first paragraph!"

I have been tinkering with the possibility of:

<body><p>"My first paragraph!"></p></body>

and/or

<body> <p> "My first paragraph!" </body>

I am getting the correct results in the editor, but the answer is not acceptable for this particular question.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html></html>
<html><head></head><body></body></html>

  <body><p>"My first paragraph!"</p></body>

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   <head></head>
   <body>
     <p>"My first paragraph!"</p>
   </body>
</html>

If that doesn't work, try to remove the double quotes enclosing the paragraph's text.

Challenge 1-4 (Each code is a continuation of the next)

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>

  2. <html></html>

  3. <html><head></head><body></body></html>

  4. <body></body> (this is where I received the message to add a <p> between <body></body>

So, Ive been trying <body><p>My first paragraph</body> (I haven't receive the correct answer yet.

After restarting the challenge entirely. I have to the conclusion that the question can be answered correctly, despite were you place the code. <html> and </htm> should not be set together like: <html></html> Yet, this is considered to be the correct answer. Which is why their is so much confusion, when you try to add on to code. Nothing is in the right place. Thank you so much for your assistance.
