Comments start with <!-- and end with -->. Instead you are starting with <!-— and ending with -—>

Plus, you should not be adding any extra text inside the comment or the test will fail.

It’s asking me to comment out my p> element so that it is not visible on my page I’ve started it with the opening <!— <p sample text

—> and closing but it keeps failing

You need to look very carefully at what you are starting it with. Comments start with <! following immediately by two dashes --. Your dashes are not normal dashes. One of them is longer than the other. If you have made changes and are still not passing the tests, post your code in a reply.

When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make easier to read.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.

Your problem is because you’re on an iPad, which is substituting two dashes with one long dash. You need to turn off “smart punctuation”, which is found under Settings > General > Keyboard.
