You don't need "http://www." so delete that. From there it was a little confusing since after that change it still failed. But I changed the double quotes for href to single quotes and it passed

Edit Now I know why. You are using fancy quotes. If you use straight double quotes, those will pass as well after removing "http://www."

Thanks Kris! It worked!

When linking to a files or images in the same directory hence other pages in the same folder or sub folder you don't need to provide the absolute URL to the browser just the reference path like pies.html or img/pie.jpg.

If you are linking to another URL or Image that is not inside your main website directory you will need to provide the absolute path like so https://google.com or https://unsplash.com/photos/NodtnCsLdTE

Lastly when writing code you can use double "quotes" or single 'quotes' any other format or quotes or back ticks wont work. Hope this helps further.. HAPPY CODING ^.^

Thank you Roberto!
