You need to read the tasks carefully. Nested means in the list item itself.

Good luck and keep on coding!


they want you to nest a ordered list (<ol></ol>)inside the shapes list item
<li>Shapes </li> <ol> <li></li> </ol> <li>Square</li> <li>Circle</li>

they want you to nest a ordered list : (<ol></ol>)inside the shapes list item <li>Shapes </li> <ol> <li>"example"</li> </ol> <li>Square</li> <li>Circle</li>

Note From Moderator:

The contents of this post has been deleted as it gives the answer to the challenge and doesn't explain how the HTML works. The preferred way of answering help requests for a challenge is to explain what the student got incorrect, how to do it properly, and why the given solution works. This allows other students who read the answer to understand the why and the how, instead of just knowing a certain code snippet works.

Happy Learning!
