You have it placed correctly, you just have one too many. It says "A couple of script tags" but it's really just looking for one. "A couple" is referring to the opening and closing tag. It's a bit confusing for them to word it like that.

So all you need to do is delete:

<script>alert("Warning!")</script>;

and you should be good to go.
