Hi Sebastian,

I would define the unordered/ordered list elements rather as the boxes that may contain list elements. Try applying a background color to an unordered list and then apply a background color only to the list elements inside of it - you should see the difference. I hope this helps! :)

A navigation bar needs standard HTML as a base. A navigation bar is basically a list of links, so using the <ul> and <li> elements makes perfect sense:


  <li><a href="Home">Home</a></li>
  <li><a href="News">News</a></li>
  <li><a href="Contact">Contact</a></li>
  <li><a href="About">About</a></li>

Yeah, but when i chose <li> as an answer to the question about how does the unordered list element looks like the answer <li> was wrong. The correct answer was <ul>. I feel like the question was poorly written.
