You've got most of the answer in your question. The title, "document.write", is the name of the function to call; and "Welcome to my Site" is the argument you will pass in parentheses after the function name. A semicolon afterwards is optional, but good practice:

document.write("Welcome to my site");

I think they meant for you to write the new code on the line below the one that says "Write your code here". :wink:

But glad I could help, and happy coding!
