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

Looks like you have too many `<script>` tags. You only need one.

I added the script src into the html code and when i executed it, it told me I have too many <Script> tags. I also tried to use less script tags but it would give me an Syntax Error. I followed the correct way to link an html to a Js code, but for some reason it wont execute.

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

Your first set of tags (the ones on a single line) load in the shout.js file. That's all you need for this challenge. The second set enclose some JavaScript code that you don't need because it's the same thing that's in the file that gets loaded.
