Since the list items are the only elements with the class '.nav-btn' you only need to use that class as your selector. The 'li' is not needed. You may also want to check your display value, think about which value would place these elements side by side while also maintaining their block level status. The same selector concept goes for the first part of the challenge, you only need to use the class '.more' for the <p> element. It appears you put two semicolons behind your 'display: none;' declaration on that part as well. You only need one.
