Great work so far in your code. Just keep in mind that links are usually done with <a href="/">Some Link Here</a>.

So your code should look something like

let navigationLinks = document.querySelectorAll('nav a');

In this challenge, you're going to select various elements from index.html. First, select all links inside the <nav> element and assign them to the variable navigationLinks. (HINT: Use a descendant selector to match elements that are descendants of an element.)

where are the links, when it mentions links, think of the <a> tag.

there is another error, where you are calling nav.ul, is that how you yo go to the child, check again the video
