Make Code Challanges Tougher--How?

In the code challnages we repeat the same things we watch in the tutorials done by the tutors. However, I suggest that the code challanges should be more difficult so that we grasp the concept of coding rather than merely imitating or copying. My suggestion is that firstly in the code challange, the elements and the attribute values should be different than those we have already seen in the video. Secondly instead of giving a step by step guide for the challange ask the task in a manner where a clear approach of things is required instead of memorization of the code. for instance,

  • Challange 1: Add a table tag in the html document.
  • Challange 2: Then add a table row in it
  • Challange 3: Then add two columns in it
  • Challange 4: Then add content in the columns you created.

This instead should be written in this manner.

Create a table with one row and two columns and add content in those columns.
