The instructions asked you to put the alert inside the "shout.js" file; but as shown above, that file is still empty. It looks like you put the alert call inside the "script" tag in the "index.html" file instead.

Put the "index.html" file back to how it was to pass task 1, and then put the new code for task 2 in the "shout.js" file (on the other tab).
