What is the difference between... document.querySelector('main').innerHTML = vs main.innerHTML = When i use the first method it works. The second message does not display.

THIS CODE WORKS - document.querySelector('main').innerHTML = <h1>You scored ${score} out of 5.</h1> <p>Crown earned is: ${playerRank}</p>;

THIS CODE WILL NOT DISPLAY - main.innerHTML = <h1>You scored ${score} out of 5.</h1> <p>Crown earned is: ${playerRank}</p>;

Did you first create "main" to reference the element, as the instructor did in step 3?

If that's not it, try sharing your whole code, with proper formatting. You might want to take a look at this video about Posting a Question, and this one about sharing a snapshot of your workspace.
