jQuery('.profile-header').hide(); jQuery('.profile-header').fadeIn(); jQuery('.profile-header').delay(2000);

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <title>Document</title>
</head>
<body>
    <h1 class="profile-header">Student <span>Profile</span></h1>

    <script
    src="jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>
    <script src="app.js"></script>
</body>
</html>
app.js
jQuery('.profile-header').hide();
jQuery('.profile-header').fadeIn();
jQuery('.profile-header').delay(2000);

The challenge says to chain the effects, as opposed to writing out the element three times, like this: $('.profile-header').hide().delay(2000).fadeIn();. Also, your second two effects are in the wrong order.
