Help! jQuery Challenge Question - Stumped

Within the anonymous function passed to the "each" method call, did you supply the argument "'<input type="checkbox"/>'" to the "prepend" method call on the jQuery object with an argument of "this"?

    <title>Document</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">

    <h2>My Favorite Things</h2>

    <ul class="favorite-things">
        <li>Kittens</li>
        <li>Rainbows</li>
        <li>Unicorns</li>
        <li>Sprinkles</li>
    </ul>

    <script
    src="jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>

$('.favorite-things li').each(function() {

});

/*your logic is correct, some syntax issues only, you have got*/

$('.favorite-things li').each(function() {
  $(this).prepend('(${<input type="checkbox"/>})'); /*can you take off the (${ and the ending })*/
});

/*you cannot just mention that this is a jquery object, within the quotes, it will have to be outside*?
/*this occasion, you would not need it, as you are mentioning already in the start like $(this)*/
