So, the a’s opening tag in the original code was this… it seems like you’ve edited it in yours but I’d start with the original:

<a href="">

What it’s asking is for you to add a new “attribute” called target in that tag, and the value should be _blank. To give you an idea of what that should look like… it should have the same structure as the other “attribute” href, that has a value of Also below a <div> element with multiple attributes as a reference of what multiple attributes might look like:

<div id="mydiv" class="div-class" onclick="runmyfunction()">

I was just stuck on this one. The tip that helped me was that it told me the <img line goes within the <a and not the other way round

An anchor is a sentence that appears at the start and/or end of a hypertext link. the text that appears between the opening and closing tags.You can also visit this site for more information.

Thank you, this helped me. I’m having trouble with these lessons bc there’s not much explanation. “Answers are not allowed” is making it 100x more difficult and has made my daughter quit these lessons :frowning:
