The tag you will want to use is <em>

Here is a link to understand when to use <em> or <i>

I'm not sure why this would pass. The element introduced in the video "to add emphasis" is not <i>.

See my answer to your other question for more information.

But <i> IS a legitimate tag. I've used it for ages and when I look at the visual rendition in the training video, sure enough it changes the emphasised text to italics.

I don't think anyone would disagree that it's a legitimate tag, or that it typically displays italics. But the challenge is asking specifically for the tag associated with emphasis, and <em> is the one introduced for that purpose in the video.
