<img src="example-image.png" alt="alternative text if the image can't be displayed">

Good morning Joaquin, refer back in your memory to the basics, what is a tag in the first place ? can u remember other examples of tags from previous lessons ? even the most basic ones. Then re-think and by using the simplest logics, answer yourself, how would u write an image tag. (hint: how does a html or a body tag look like ? ) hope that helps :)

Well, u didnt provide any code. Tags are keywords surrounded by ankle brackets. An html tag describes the html content. Basically we have two types of html tags : <h1></h1>(opening and closing tag) and <img>(just one openor main tag) for your case.

So your image tag should look like this : <img src="images/ball.png" alt="">

Alt attribute is an alternative text, should incase your images is not to be found , the text will be shown in place.
