Hi Adlan Ilyasov

Your code is mostly right. The only thing you need to change is your listItems variable, you are currently getting the <ul> list and not the <li> list items, so you need to change it like so:

// replace this
// let listItems = document.getElementsByTagName('ul');

// with this
let listItems = document.getElementsByTagName('li');

Hope this helps
