I do not know what is happening when I try to solve this task. The code seems to be correct but every time I get an error.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <title>Document</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">
</head>
<body>
    <h2>Star Trek Characters</h2>

    <ul class="character-list">
        <li>Captain Jean Luc Picard</li>
        <li>Data</li>
        <li>Warf</li>
        <li>Dr. Crusher</li>
    </ul>

    <div>I am supposed to stay hidden!</div>    

    <script

Please try your code how delete the var $hidden varible and write your code in 1 row. You forgot the paragraph tags. For example:

$('li:hidden').show();
