Remove the src="" attribute inside the script tags. Just have the script tags alone. It should pass that question for you. Usually, you are expected to include an src attribute too.

Think of it like creating style tags inside the HTML document and applying your CSS inside the same document rather than another. It is essentially doing the same thing here but for javascript. Therefore you do not need to provide a src attribute.
