JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Introducing JavaScript Link to an External Script

It Iooks like Task 1 is no longer passing

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
  <script src="shout.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
alert('Warning!');
</script>



<script>


</body>
</html>

After completing challenge Task 1 moving on task 2 it informs me that task 1 is incorrect

index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>
shout.js

The first task asks you to link only one script tag to the body tag, you have added too many which causes the error. The second task asks you to add an alert box in shout.js, not in the index.html.
