They are asking you to add a script tag in the body of the html document that links to an external javascript file. The syntax looks like this...

  <script src="someJavascriptFile.js"></script>

Hope that helps :thumbsup:

got it. thanks!

This challenge shows you how to link Javascript file to html file. Just like you have to link a css file to the html file. It's recommended to place the script <script src=""></script> in the body at the bottom. This allows the page to completely load before running the script.

Got it, thanks!
