There is a couple of things wrong with your setup. You only need one pair of elements each, that means one html element, one head, body, and p. What they ask you to do is put the <p>My first paragraph</p> inside the body tag, that means between the opening body tag <body> and the closing body tag </body>. Now, the head tag should go above the body element like you did, but the body and the head tag need to go between the html tag, like this.



<body> Here goes the p tag </body>


Ps. This course you are doing right now is retiring soon, you should start with the updated one. Here is the link:


Good luck!
