Hi there! You're doing great, but you've gotten things a bit backwards here. The only allowable direct descendant of an ordered or unordered list is a list item (<li>). When you make the links the anchor tags should be inside the list item. Yours are the other way around. You have the list items inside inside the anchor tags.

I think you can get it with these hints, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:

Thanks so much ..I got it now ..you're the best
