Hi Gedeon,

the first script tags that is referring to "scripts.js" are not needed because there is actually no external javascript file in that code challenge.

In this code challenge you just use the script tags to write your javascript code directly in the html document (which you did correctly).

So you just need to remove the first script tags.

Happy coding, Nils
