This looks a lot like your previous question. Did you see my answer to that one?

In both cases, it looks like you've added several new, empty elements to the provided code. But in this challenge, you'll be placing semantic container elements around other elements that were provided in the code initially. You will not create any new content or any empty elements.

When the tasks mention elements that go "inside", they are talking about ones that are already there. In each task you will place containing elements around the existing code.
