Selecting Elements Challenge: Task 1 No Longer passes after I answer Task 2

Working through "Interactive Web Pages in JS." My code for Task 1 passes with no issue:

 var fullName = document.getElementById("full_name");

Task 2 fails and informs me that Task 1 is no longer passing:

 var fullName = document.getElementById("full_name");
 var lastName = document.getElementByClassName('last_name');

This is odd as there doesn't seem to be any difference in the line from one task to the next. Tried some reconfiguring to no avail. Maybe my Task 2 is bad, but then why is it telling me Task 1 won't pass?

Hey Adam,



and let me know!

Wow. Yes. I didn't have the 's' at the end of 'Elements.' Thanks so much! Amazing that you can stare at the same thing for 20 minutes and not see what's obviously wrong.
