Create three list item with the words "portfolio", "about" and "contact". Don't add links yet. Confused with this?

Try to learn html basic but just confused with this. I got one code <li><a href="index.html">portfolio</a></li>

They are asking you to create the list items first to show that you know how to create the listed items using li tags.

In the next step, they will ask you to turn them into links.

I think this is to make you show that you understand the concepts of both and how to implement them, because in some cases you may just need to create list items and not turn them into links.

I think it is asking you to create 3 list items like the below: <ul> <li>portfolio</li> <li>about</li> <li>contact</li> </ul>

Then the next step would probably ask you to add links.

They may be asking you to list this:

<ul> <li>about</li> <li>portfolio</li> <li>contact</li> </ul>

Watch the video again and make sure you know what "list item" is in HTML and how it works.
