You're only supposed to have one script tag in this situation, containing all of your JavaScript. The reason why you're getting an error on this one, is because the document.write() is not inside a script tag, and is therefore not interpreted as JavaScript. Your code should look something like this

<script>
// log Begin program
document.write("Welcome to JavaScript Basics");
// log End program
</script>

Thank You , got the hang of this
