Challenge: Create a Form Element

Link to the challenge:


I got the following error message:

"The existing input

element should be nested within a form."

I don’t see how the input element isn’t nested in the form.

The test results said that my opening and closing tags were ok

and so was my action attribute.


it’s not nested, you have added attributes (invalid) to the form tag, and removed the input element
