Hi Po Ya Fan, I think the problem lies with the code after the first variable in app.js. In the const outer, you select "nav", which holds ONLY the NAVIGATION LINKS. However, you have two more variables to declare after that: "galleryLinks" and "footerImages".

Be sure that your other undeclared variables in lines 3 and 4 contain the links from the list with the id "gallery", as well as the footer.

I hope you find this helpful :)

I finally figure out, this question want me to select all <a> under the <nav>, insteal of selecting all <li> under <nav>

the code then be:

const outer = document.querySelector('nav');
let navigationLinks = outer.querySelectorAll('li > a');
