React img src attribute

Why do we have to wrap the image tag into some other tag inorder to read data that has been passed to it when exported as a prop .Eg
<p><img src={props.src} alt=""/></p>

You don’t have to wrap it.

function Image(props) {
  return <img src={props.src} alt={props.alternativeText}/>;

function App() {
  return (
      <p>This is an image</p>
      <Image src="" alternativeText="placeholder image"/>

But you should be returning a single root element (The Rules of JSX).

You are going to have to provide more context for what you are doing and what it is that doesn’t work for you.
