HTML HTML Basics Going Further with HTML Links and Paths Challenge

I am having issues with answering this, not sure what its asking?

Set the <img> element's src attribute to a path that goes one level out of the current folder and inside a folder named img.

my initial answer was:

<img src"../"logo.png"

but I got it wrong, can someone help or give me an example of what the question is asking ?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Portfolio Page</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <img src="logo.png" alt="Site logo" >
    <ul>
      <li><a href="">Home</a></li>
      <li><a href="">Portfolio</a></li>                
    </ul>
    <h1 id="portfolio">My Portfolio</h1>
  </body>
</html>

You were halfway there. You got the "goes one level out of the current folder" part.

But you still need to add the "...and inside a folder named img." part.

Also, you won't need to add any quotes. Your changes will be entirely between the quotes already there.

I'll bet you can get it now without an explicit code spoiler.

Here's what you need:

<img src="../img/logo.png" alt="Site logo">

When you start he challenge, it has it as "logo.png", the '..' makes the code exit out of the directory where the HTML file is in. Next, the '/img' that follows the '..' would make the code go into that directory.

Back in the DOS days, say you want to leave the directory, you would put "CD .." to leave. Then to go to the img folder, you'd type "CD img."
