You are using the wrong method, the method you are currently using is trying to select and reference all paragraph elements on the page but there aren't any. The name of the variable is also clear that you need to create a new paragraph. Replace the method to document.createElement() and pass the element name as the argument like you have done previously.

The challenge may also want you to assign the newParagraph variable the value on the same line, basically creating an expression.

Thank you so much, its working...
