We can't create a contact by itself (without an associated account). Make sure the validation rule applies ONLY when the contact has an associated account.

I am getting this error and I have done every thing correctly still I don't understand whats the problem here

I'm new to the sales force.
This was a problem for me as well. I completed all of the steps.
Finally, I switched playground. Actually, I've made a new admin intermediate playground. However, I had a lot of trouble finding error with the validation rule.
So I completed this challenge using my prior playground, and it worked.

Hey buddies try to switch your org i was also facing this issue, but as soon as i switched my org it works & i have completed my assesment. This occurs because we have to create more than one org while solving the trails and our assesments require some fields mandatorily and that we have created in our different org, so that may be the possibility, this can be a suggestion only i am still new to Salesforce.
