You need the first part to get through task one but then you need to add

.text(I am a web developer); 

to the bit you did in part one to pass part two.

I have done that bt now giving me another error : oops it looks like task 1 is no longe..... .

Remove the first $('.profile-text'); It is confusing the answer.
