Welcome to the form.

There are just a few minor errors in your code.
First, you seem to have created two img elements. Second, the alt attribute is not quite right.

Alt attributes are used in image elements, in case there is a problem loading the picture into the browser. They provide a description of the image so the user can get some context, even if they cannot see the image.

The double quote needs to be move from the front of alt to after the equals sign.

eg. alt=“a sunny day”

From the second line delete <img src =“cat.jpg”
Move the second line onto the first line. You will need to delete the last angled bracket from the first img, until you have just one line of code.

Happy coding
