In the second step don't use querySelector. The quiz is asking for you how select first item in unordered list and store it. The first element has its own id. I hope this help.

Thanks for being resourceful to me in community. I really I appreciate it.

This is a good way to practicing and I repeat which I learned long ago.

It worked for me in CSS and HTML. It works wonderful . I try JavaScript too

Good luck! Ask us if you do not know something.

Ok thanks

css selector is wrong too. this could work also, but querySelector doesn't know what type of info you're passing in, and what you're telling it to look for is a class, not id. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/CSS_Selectors here a doc for reference.
