In the listener that has been added to the section element, ensure that the text input elements are the only children

I can't solve this task, it seems that I'm selecting the right tag "input" but it doesn't work. The goal is to is to ensure that the text input elements are the only children that trigger the background-changing behavior.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>JavaScript and the DOM</title>
    </head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <body>
        <section>

        </section>
        <script src="app.js"></script>
    </body>

app.js
let section = document.getElementsByTagName('section')[0];

section.addEventListener('click', (e) => {
  if (e.target.tagName == 'input') {
  e.target.style.backgroundColor = 'rgb(255, 255, 0)'; }
});

You're really close! But tag names are always stored in UPPER CASE.

See the MDN documentation page for more details.
