Hi Melissa,

There's a number of tags you can use to "section" or group content to make your markup semantic.

You want to group multiple groups of elements h3 p. You can do that with the article element. Try to wrap the heading and paragraph elements in one article element for each.

<article></article>

You'll find that it is all explained in the video(s) preceding the code challenge/quiz.

These videos are about teaching the HTML elements that give meaning to web page code which is what we mean by Semantics.

So this question refers to the first part of the code challenge. If you use article elements and switch them for the div elements in the attempted code, it should work. :-)
