Hi Anthony,

The challenge should pass if you remove the outer quotation marks in the argument passed to alert():

  <script>
    alert('Warning!');
  </script>

Hello, Anthony!

You had a minor syntax error with your code.

//YOUR CODE

 alert("'Warning!'");
"I will be a JavaScript master!"

I believe that you took the question too literally. It asked you to create an alert box saying 'Warning'. You did do that, but it was asking for you to have the alert simply say Warning without the quotation marks.

Also, you should not have placed, "I will be a JavaScript master!".

If this doesn't help at all, the correct answer is:

//ANSWER

alert('Warning!');
