The challenge is asking you to link your external JavaScript file with the index.html which means you need to specify the path to the JS file using the "src" attribute in the script tag. Once you've done that, move on to the next stage and write your code inside the shout.js file.

<script src="shout.js">
  <! -- Do not write any code here instead write it on the shout.js file. -->
</script>
