Get the error "Bummer! Your <div> elements need to both have 'class' attributes." What am I missing?

Hi,

When I added classes to both div sections on Challenge Task 1 of 2(First Day of School), I got the error "Bummer! Your <div> elements need to both have 'class' attributes."

I added classes to both sections (see code below). What am I missing?

<div> <div class="favorite_stuff"> <h4>Favorite Foods?</h4> <input name="food[]"> <input name="food[]"> <input name="food[]"> <input name="food[]"> </div> <div> <div class="favorite_stuff"> <h4>Favorite Animals?</h4> <input name="animal[]"> <input name="animal[]"> <input name="animal[]"> <input name="animal[]">

Thanks,

Jan

You're right. The open/close tags are unbalanced. I was thinking that the original <div > tag should be left alone, but it looks like that's not the case. I just need to add class = "favorite stuff" to the original tag. Thanks!

It looks like you added a duplicate opening tag for the div elements.

Instead of adding the class to the existing div tags, you seem to have added a completely new opening div tag. So now the open/close tag pairs are unbalanced, plus the original div tags still do not have classes.
