Link to the challenge:

at the start of the step you are shown this code:

<form>
</form>

This is a form element.
To add an attribute to any element simply add the attribute to the opening tag.
The opening tag is this one: <form>
The attribute should contain a key, an equals, and a value in double quotes.

hope this helps

Yes it helped, thanks my code works.

this is the form element. You want to include the action attribute in the opening tag of this element.
(think about adding a key, then an equals then a value in double quotes. Just like you would add an href attribute for eg)

just like when you use the src attribute within an img, so
