Defining data and type when using the object tag

I eventually realized I wasn't passing this challenge because I was expected to define not only the 'data' attribute, but also the 'type' attribute. It took me a while to attempt that though because W3Schools said one of those two MUST be defined -- (see here: http://www.w3schools.com/TAGS/tag_object.asp) -- Is it more correct to say both attributes must ALWAYS be defined, or is that only the case because of something to do with SVG objects?

I would say that the type attribute is needed in this instance because you are using an SVG file, and there are probably other MIME tyoes that would need to be specified in an object as well., in order to work properly.
