Hi there! I received your request for assistance. It's important to note when doing these challenge that it's good to try and take the instructions very literally and not do anything they don't explicitly ask you to do.

They simply want you to copy the TextView that was already given and then paste it in below the current TextView. When you've done that, erase the word "TextView" and type "Button" in its place.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
