I'm stuck in small task..

hello, everybody.. I created paragraph element and I think I stored in newParagraph variable but it keeps telling me Bummer. I have little dyslexia and sometimes I feel the explanations for the task are not enough to understand what they want me to do. please help me :(

app.js
var contentDiv = document.getElementById('content');
var newParagraph = document.getElementsByTagName('p')[0];
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    </head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <body>
      <p>I'm a Paragraph</p>
        <div id="content">

        </div>
        <script src="app.js"></script>
    </body>
</html>

You're going about this in slightly the wrong way.

Rather than selecting a paragraph element, you need to create one using JavaScript.

Like this

let variable = document.createElement('element');

good luck! :-)
