Hi @biniamefrem12 !

Welcome to the forum!

Edit: I have moved your duplicate post over to this open thread.

Looking at your code, you have a few syntax errors here

Please carefully review the sample code again on proper syntax

<input type="text" placeholder="this is placeholder text">

Then try again with the challenge.

But in the future, please describe in more detail what you need help with so we can assist you.
Thanks! :grinning:
