I need help with this challenge!!!!

In the listener that has been added to the section element, ensure that the text input elements are the only children that trigger the background-changing behavior.

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>JavaScript and the DOM</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
            <h1>Making a Webpage Interactive</h1>
            <p>JavaScript is an exciting language that you can use to power web servers, create desktop programs, and even control robots. But JavaScript got its start in the browser way back in 1995.</p>

                <li>Item One: <input type="text"></li>
                <li>Item Two: <input type="text"></li>
                <li>Item Three: <input type="text"></li>
                <li>Item Four: <input type="text"></li>
        <script src="app.js"></script>
let section = document.getElementsByTagName('section')[0];

section.addEventListener('click', (e) => {
  if ( == 'li') { = 'rgb(255, 255, 0)';

Try it without using .TagName. You're allowed to use .type as well (I tried it out first and then put in the type name in the single quotes and it marked it as passing).

You are very close!

Change your IF-condition to this and you should be fine :)

if ( == 'INPUT')
