You can get a Collection back by using the querySelectorAll method on the document object.

var listItems = document.querySelectorAll('ul li');

Anthony's advice is correct. And the sample code shown will pass the challenge, but it's not the optimal solution.

The instructions say "The collection should contain all list items in the <ul> element with the ID of rainbow." So a more correct solution would include the ID in the selector. This way, if another list should be added to the code at a later time, the selector will still only target the desired elements.
