Why wont my code submit? Im sure my code is correct

Below is my code. I needed 3 headinds and three paragraphs. The submit error says my paragraphs aren't closed ?

<h2>A big heading!</h2><p>This is what a big heading thinks about. Fun, no?</p>

<h4> OH okay, a smaller heading. This isnt very exciting...</h4>
<p>Im just not the heading  i used to be. Ive become a shell of a heading</p>

<h6> This is just pathetic</h6>
<p>I should have finished heading college</p> 

</body>

I had the same problem.

There shouldn't have to be a workaround for simple beginner lessons. This will get people confused and ultimately uninspired to continue through the coursework. They might feel like they did something wrong when it's the system that is not working correctly.

EDIT: One possible solution would be to edit the directions to state the following..."Under each heading, add two short paragraphs. Don't forget paragraphs need opening and closing tags!"

I had the same problem. In order to proceed, I added another paragraph under each paragraph I had before. It recognized the exercise as complete then. This doesn't solve the larger issue, but should let you proceed.

Olivera, your <h2> is being closed with a </p>. Not a good combination, it should be </h2> ( I know you know that!).

Currently there is a problem where code from a previous lesson doesn't transfer to the next lesson automatically. You need to press the RESET button on the new lesson to carry the previous code forward. Hopefully this problem will be solved shortly.

I did not know about the Reset Button restoring prior codes, and I found it useful in the following project.

You're code is good. Looks like mranes is right; add two paragraphs under each header like the instructions in previous paragraphs.
