document.write script

Hello,

Per the challenge instructions, I am trying to call the document.write method to print "Welcome to my site" on to the webpage, however, I'm still getting an error that I did not call document.write after compiling the program.

What exactly am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

</head>

<body>
</body>

<document.write>
Welcome to my site

</script>

</html>

document.write must be inside script tag.you put it like a tag.and put "Welcome to my site" like an argument for write method

I also see that you have added closing Script tag but no opening script tags.
