HTML HTML Video and Audio Media Basics The Audio Element

Code format exactly the same with the lecture example, working well. But incorrect message

The preview works as I intended and the code format is exactly the same with the previous lecture. But browser keep says it's incorrect.

Hello Sebin!

This challenge is asking that you have a closed audio tag and wants you to continue building off of the previous code. You've done a great job getting to this point (and even your above code is technically correct), but it's not what the challenge is asking of you. Let's take a moment to go back to the answer of previous step of the challenge:

<audio src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge-audio.mp3" type="audio/mp3">

Here we have the self-closing audio tag, the source attribute, and the type attribute. The next step is 'On the <audio> tag, add the controls attribute.' In your above answer you've reformatted the code that you've been writing for the challenge to better match the videos. The expanded <audio> tag with the <source> elements as the children works wonders when you have multiple audios to display, but you can actually write the controls attribute right into the self-closing <audio> tag when you only have one source! What this challenge is ultimately asking for is:

<audio controls src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge-audio.mp3" type="audio/mp3">

where the controls attribute follows audio in the tag. Hope this helps!
