You have to create an unordered list, where each list item is a name key of an item from options list.

  {% for option in options %}
    <li>{{ option.name }}</li>
  {% endfor %}

So each item in the options list is a dictionary so when you iterate through the list it wants you to get the 'name' value from each of the dictionaries.

<ul> {% for item in options %} 
<li> {{item['name']}}</li>
{% endfor %} </ul>
