Precisely. And your text input doesn’t have that attribute. Read about HTML Attributes for more help :slight_smile:

Yes it doesn’t. They give you an example of how to use required in the instructions.

if he knows or understood what to do,am sure he wouldn’t ask for help. if you know the answer, just help or give him an hint. its as simple as that.
