I assume you mean the code challenge "Images and Lists"...

First of all you should never delete the code for the previous task. Second, read the objective very carefully and do exactly as it says. When it says add a title "Smells Like Bakin' Cupcake Company", you should write Smells Like Bakin' Cupcake Company. Notice how the double quotes are gone but the single quote is still there.

Next one, add a image, it says add the image cupcake.jpg from the folder img. You should write in the body <img src="img/cupcake.jpg">. Don't add the alt attribute if it doesn't say so.

The third objective, add empty unordered list, write <ul></ul> after the image element.

Last one, add three list items, you should write <li>About</li> etc. inside of the ul tags.

It is easy to misspell, miss to close tags properly and so on. Always check carefully for typos etc.

I know I shouldn't give you the answers for the challenge, but I did this so you will know how to handle the code challenges in the future. It is easy to misunderstand them. Just read carefully and do exactly as it says. Don't add anything extra if it doesn't say so, i.e. like the alt attribute in the img tag.
