it looks like the part that was failing is:


Remove everything from "index.html" except for the extends and block tags and their contents.

It wants you to remove the already existing elements in layout.html, using only blocks inside the index.html. So you dont need to repeat elements you have wrapped around your blocks from layouts. if that makes sense.

So if you have a body tag inside layouts.html that is wrapping around the block content tag. Then inside your index.html tag if you wrap another body tag around the same block content tag you will end up with a page that has two opening and closing body tags inside each other.
