I feel like I'm solving the problem in a way the test doesn't want me to (apparently that matters).
I have created a paragraph element, and assigned it to the variable as specified, however it tells me that I haven't done that. Was I supposed to do it differently or did I use the wrong syntax?
var contentDiv = document.getElementById('content'); var newParagraph = document.getElementsByTagName('p');
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>DOM Manipulation</title> </head> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" /> <body> <div id="content"> <p>This is a paragraph</p> </div> <script src="app.js"></script> </body> </html>

Hi there, R Ighodaro ! It looks like you're doing terrific and seems like you definitely know how to select a paragraph that currently exists inside the HTML. But the challenge is asking you to make a new paragraph without altering the existing HTML.
Hope this helps!
