Hey Andrew,

This challenge wants you to add text to the new paragraph that is created. The way you can do that to text based elements such as paragraphs, divs, sections, spans, etc. is to modify either their textContent/innerText or innerHTML property. Using those text properties allows you to add/replace any text data within the element. Using the innerHTML property can allow you to add text and/or elements to another element. The text properties are faster to use than the HTML property. So, any of those properties are valid ways to set the text in the element.

newParagraph.textContent = "JavaScript is enabled";
//newParagraph.innerText = "JavaScript is enabled";
//newParagraph.innerHTML = "JavaScript is enabled";

I am no javascript expert, but from the looks of the question it looks like it wants you to tie a paragraph to a document using javascript.

Sorry i could not be of more help.
