JavaScript DOM Scripting By Example Adding and Removing Names Using the submit Event

So, I am wondering do I need to delete the submitButton element?

I have tried deleting and replacing the submitButton with the form element, but the code is still not working. I need some help with this problem?

const form = document.querySelector('form');
const submitButton = form.querySelector('type=Submit');

submitButton.addEventListener('submit', () => {  
<!DOCTYPE html>
  <title>Submit Event</title>
  <input type="text" name="name">
  <input type="Submit" name="submit" value="Submit">
  <script src="app.js"></script>

The system should have given you this hint:
ā€ƒ Bummer: You didn't use addEventListener on the form

That's a hint that the "submit" event should be listened for on the form instead of the button.
