The document is the global object through wich we can access the web page, or at least what the user's browser has built out of the website markup (this thing is called the DOM - document object model).

The write is a function of the document object is a function through which we can change the content within the <body> tag of the DOM. Every function is called with its name and parentheses, in which we can put parameters which can be inputs for some of the functions. This write function needs only 1 parameter, which is a string, that's the string it will write into the DOM.

The solution will look something like this:

document.write("Welcome to my site");
