but you did not answer to this part of question "Give your form’s text input field a class of form-control. "
and please give with me this part answer “Give the text input in your form the class form-control.”

@bahmanlodder,

They are asking you to give your input field that is linked to the “submit” button the class of “form-control”

<input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
<button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary"><i class="fa fa-paper-plane"></i> Submit</button>
