What is wrong with my code? I don't understand

This is whats it is saying The existing

input

element should be nested within a

form

element. Your

form

element should have well-formed open and close tags.

Challenge: Create a Form Element

Link to the challenge:

It looks like your input is above your form.

Also you made a new, empty input element here. You shouldn’t be making a new input element.

You did not nest the existing input element. Rather you left it outside of the form element you created and put in blank input.

Nesting was first touched on in this lesson

Here’s an example of a nested element

<outerElement class="parent">
  <nestedElement class="child"> 
  </nestedElement>
</outerElement>

This space should not go.

This goes after the form area.

Example:

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

You can post solutions that invite discussion (like asking how the solution works, or asking about certain parts of the solution). But please don’t just post your solution for the sake of sharing it.
If you post a full passing solution to a challenge and have questions about it, please surround it with [spoiler] and [/spoiler] tags on the line above and below your solution code.
