I tried as above still test cases are failing. Please advise on what i am doing wrong.
Expected      Run            
makeTags("i", "Yay") → "<i>Yay</i>"      "<i>Yay<i/>"      X         
makeTags("i", "Hello") → "<i>Hello</i>"      "<i>Hello<i/>"      X         
makeTags("cite", "Yay") → "<cite>Yay</cite>"      "<cite>Yay<cite/>"      X         
makeTags("address", "here") → "<address>here</address>"      "<address>here<address/>"      X         
makeTags("body", "Heart") → "<body>Heart</body>"      "<body>Heart<body/>"      X         
makeTags("i", "i") → "<i>i</i>"      "<i>i<i/>"      X         
makeTags("i", "") → "<i></i>"      "<i><i/>"      X
