<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
   <script src="shout.js"></script>
    <script> 
  alert("I DID IT!");
  </script>
</body>
</html>

The first script tag that loads "shout.js" is correct. That's the one you added in task 1.

The second one (with the code in it) is the cause of the issue, and should be removed. The task 2 code should be written on the "shout.js" tab, and no additional changes will be made to the HTML.

You might have overlooked the (bolded) instructions.

Inside the shout.js file, write the code for an alert dialog with the message 'I DID IT!'

Thank you! it worked out.
