I get thie error. Did you make a call to the "html" method on the jQuery with a selector of ".profile-header"? I do not know why because I used $(".profile-header") to call the html method. my code is attached

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <h1 class="profile-header"></h1>
    <p class="profile-text"></p>

    <script src="app.js"></script>
$(".profile-text").text("I am a web developer").html("<p>I am a web developer.</p>");
$(".profile-header").text("Student Profile").html("Student<span>Profile</span>");

You don't need to provide 'I am a web developer' and 'Student Profile' in both the text() and html() methods, only one for each. This would be your answer:

$('.profile-text').text('I am a web developer');
$('.profile-header').html('Student <span>Profile</span>');
