JavaScript DOM Scripting By Example Adding and Removing Names Using the submit Event

I have no clue what the question is asking??

what is this questionn saying?? i'm clueless on what to do

const form = document.querySelector('form');
const submitButton = form.querySelector('[type=Submit]');

submitButton.addEventListener('click', () => {

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <title>Submit Event</title>
  <input type="text" name="name">
  <input type="Submit" name="submit" value="Submit">
  <script src="app.js"></script>

the question by they way is "Alter the event handler on line 4 to run when the form is submitted, not just when the submit button has been clicked. Leave the callback function empty for now."

You will need to modify the existing code to do this. Change the submitButton element in the listener use the form element instead and then change the click event into a submit event. This will make the event listener fire when the form is submitted.
