The code is correct, but it's still telling me that it's wrong. How can I get this section completed?

Thanks.

Hey Matthew,

If the code checker says it's wrong... it's usually because it is. :smirk:

Here, it's just a small syntax error you have. The paragraph for the 2nd heading has an opening <p> tag but no closing </p> tag. There is instead another opening one.

Just correct that error, and the code will be right and pass the challenge. :smiley:

Good work & Keep Coding! :dizzy:

Dude your second paragraph where it begins "Ice cream candy" you forgot to close it off with the forward slash.

Strange, it told me that the 2nd part was right, but the 3rd one was wrong, hence my confusion. Thanks though.

Yes, that is strange and misleading. It should have given a Bummer for the 2nd task with the proper closing tag absent. I understand the confusion this would cause. Tagging Guil Hernandez to have a look at the Quiz. :)

Small syntax can be hard to see, but paying attention to detail is important to spot the small errors :)
