Antonio is correct. The first question asks for script tags

<script></script>

The second question simply wants you to write the JavaScript inside the script tags

<script>
  alert('Warning!');
</script>

So the full code should be

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
  <script>
    alert('Warning!');
  </script>
</body>
</html>

  <script>
    alert("warning!");

I got it now. I thought I have to include the task 1 in order to write a function for an alert dialog with that 'warning' message for task 2. Thank you. I'm brand new learner to programming! :-(
