Hi, Ronald I understand it's frustrating when something doesn't work so let's do it step-by-step :

Your code at 5/6 tasks should look like that -

    <ol>
      <li>Stop</li>
      <li>Drop</li>
      <li>Roll</li>
    </ol>
    <ul>
      <li>Shapes</li>
      <li>Colors</li>
    </ul>

And this is how it should look at 6/6 -

    <ol>
      <li>Stop</li>
      <li>Drop</li>
      <li>Roll</li>
    </ol>
    <ul>
      <li>Shapes
        <ol>
          <li>Square</li>
          <li>Circle</li>
        </ol>
      </li>
      <li>Colors</li>
    </ul>

Hey Ronald,

  1. Delete the <li> elements : Square & Circle
  2. Create an <li> element named: "shapes"
  3. In that element nest an ordered list, with the items: square & circle

Then you should pass the task, hope I've helped

I have copied my code exactly the way you yours, and i am on task 6/6. and every time i hit check. it says i have too many list items under the unordered list. i don't know what else to do. Any ideas? (By the way thank you for taking the time to typing out that code. it means a lot.)
