The challenge asks you to link the "shout.js" file inside of the "index.html".

There are two places to link a JavaScript file in HTML, either inside of the <head> tag, or at the end of the <body>. The challenge asks you to place it at the end of the body.

Remember that to link a JavaScript file, you use the <script> tag, with the "src" (source) attribute.

So, your result should look like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
  <script src="shout.js"></script>
</body>
</html>
