No clue what I am doing here..

I have been having trouble understanding the concept of this particular quiz, can anyone help me figure out what it is that I am doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance.

app.js
var inputValue = document.querySelector('input').value;
p.textContent = inputValue;
inputValue.info = inputValue;
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
      <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    </head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <body>
      <div id="content">
        <label for="linkText">Link Text:</label>
        <input type="text" id="linkText" value="sample text">
        <p class="info"></p>
      </div>
    <script src="app.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

You need to select the <p> element like you did with the <input> element and set its textContent to inputValue:

document.querySelector('p').textContent = inputValue;

Also, the last line is unnecessary.
