You are very close! You just need to remove the whitespace before the names of the list items. You may need to also capitalize the words too! See my example below:

<li>Item</li>
<li>Item 2</li>
<li>Item 3</li>
<ul>
    <li>Portfolio</li>
    <li>About</li>
    <li>Contact</li>
</ul>

Remove the spaces and capitalize the words.

Providing students with direct answers to a solution is considered bad practice, I have been warned in the past by a moderator. That is the reason why my answer is an example and allows the student to understand the reason behind it, proving a vague answer with a solution doesn't allow students to learn for the long run.
