Hey, I looked at the challenge and it wants you to add a self-closing <audio> tag, which means the tag closes itself and doesn't need an additional closing tag such as something like <title> and </title>.

A self-closing tag is just a single tag with its name and then the forward slash. I think this is what the challenge is looking for:

<div class="wrapper">

      <!-- Add your code below this line -->
      <audio />


Does that make sense?
