Hi Christina,

It's a simple typo I'm afraid:

  <ol>
      <li>Stop</li>
      <li>Drop</li>
      <li>Roll</li>
    </ol>

Capital S, D and R

how would i show you that

Copy paste what you have done so far or take a picture of it ...how ever you want. Just show us your code so we can see where the problem lies at :)

Christina;

If you look below the area in which you type your response there is a link to the Markdown Cheatsheet which explains how to post code.

That being said, it sounds like you are on Task 2 of this challenge since you are asking about adding Stop, Drop, and Roll to the list, correct?

The challenge asks us to, add the following list items to the ordered list: "Stop", "Drop", and "Roll". So inside the ordered list <ol></ol> tags we created in Task 1, we need to add the aforementioned list items. So our code would look something like:

<ol>
   <li>Stop</li>
   <li>Drop</li>
   <li>Roll</li>
</ol>

The ordered list elements tells the browser to number the list items that are within the confines of the ordered list tags. As you proceed through the challenge be sure to check the preview to see how ordered and unordered lists behave in the browser.

Hope it helps and happy coding,

Ken

i've done that but it keeps saying Bummer! The first list item should be "Stop"

<ol>
      <li>stop</li>
      <li>drop</li>
      <li>roll</li>
    </ol>

this is what i've done so far and it keeps saying its wrong
