You need to wrap your string with a parenthesis (no need for spaces), in order for it to work. like this.

document.write("welcome to my site")

Thank you!

Otman Zaib- Please look below:

// Write your code here.

</script>document.write("Welcome to my site")

If you look closely you'll see that you're writing your code outside of the script tag. which is the opening and closing script tags <script></script> JavaScript code must go inside the a script tags when written inside your html file. Also you can remove this comment "// Write your code here." They're ignored by browser, they're just for human readability.

The correct code should look as simple as this.

    document.write("Welcome to my site");

Finally got it! Thank you!!
