    <p class="profile-text">I am a web developer!</p>

    <label>Change name:<input id="name-input" type="text"></label>

You're close!

They are asking you to reassign the value of the header 2 element using the text() function. You are close, just take variable you to set up in task one and pass it as an argument in the function call in the next line.

$('button').click(function() {
  const newName = $("#name-input").val();

This shows that when you select an element, in this case .profile-name, and pass something inside text() as a parameter, you are setting the text within the selected element's tags.
