Hi Daniel,

The challenge wants us to, within the body tags in index.html, write the HTML code that will load the JavaScript file (in the case of this assignment, that file is named shout.js.)

To do this, we need to use the script element (to load the script file) and the src attribute (to provide the name of the file we want to load.)

<body>
  <script src="shout.js"></script>
</body>

Hope this helps!
