I am confused... again
Am I on the right track here ? Or should I make another pot of coffee?
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>DOM Manipulation</title> </head> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" /> <body> <ul> <li id="first">First Item</li> <li id="second">Second Item</li> <li id="third">Third Item</li> </ul> <script src="app.js"></script> </body> </html>
let myList = document.querySelector('ul'); let firstListItem = $('li').first();

I don't think jQuery is available to the challenges in this course.
li element, including:
- you could use querySelector, it returns the first element by default
- you could get the children of myList, and then subscript it (index 0) to get the first one
- you could use getElementById since it has the unique ID "first"
