Problems opening a project Build a Website with HTML, CSS, and Github

Hii! New programmer here. I am currently on module 6 of the “Build a Website with HTML, CSS, and Github…” course.
The project for the third part of the module is an off-platform project in which I am given broken code and I have to fix it but when i download the code provided and try to open it on Visual Studio Code it tells me there’s an error and the code is not correct.

I tried manually opening the file but it seems to be empty, pls help!!
