It looks like you just have some syntax errors, but you have the right idea, and the correct number of list items.

<nav>
  <ul> 
    <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li> <!-- You were missing a double quote before index.html here. -->
    <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li> <!-- You were missing a double quote before about.html, and a closing / on the li here. -->
    <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li> <!-- You were missing a double quote before contact.html, and a closing / on the li here. -->
  </ul>
</nav> <!-- You were missing the closing > here. -->

I've detailed the changes I made to your code to fix the syntax issues. Make sure you always open and close each element, and always include both opening and closing quotes. Happy coding!
