Hi Ngat,

All your code is correct, except you have a small typo in the string. You have DIT instead of DID. Challenges are very picky and very specific in what they check for. Just fix the typo and you're good to go! :)

Keep Coding! :dizzy:

Thanks for your help! I am really clumsy

What is the challenge you are having? you need to state this. If you were trying to link an external shout.js file to your .html file then you must make sure to add the full path in the src="js/shout.js" attribute of the .html file.

From what you have shown, you have added shout.js file as if in the same folder with your .html file. You need to confirm this

Thanks for your help. The correct answer is: alert("I DIT IT!");
