Hi i got the solution to the error. To solve this error, i had to make sure that the <script> tag comes after the element that i wanted to select. Thanks

It looks like it's not picking up the element you want to select, properly.

Are you sure it exists in the HTML? Or that you have saved all the files in your workspace/text editor. :-)
