Your code has an error This in how you include a JavaScript file

<script src="scripts.js"></script>  //yours has srce instead of src

Also remove the <script> tag just before the </head> tag and the <script> tag just before the </body> tags

1.The challenge asks you in task 1 - to Add opening and closing script tags inside the body of the page.
so just place the opening script under the <body>

2.The second task is writing a Warning message with alert dialog.
