How do I prevent type error?

app.js
let section = document.getElementsByTagName('ul')[0];

section.addEventListener('click', (e) => {
  if(e.target.tagName === 'INPUT') {
  e.target.style.backgroundColor = 'rgb(255, 255, 0)';
  }
});

For the benefit of other readers, it might be nice to point out that changing the argument on the top line from "selection" to "ul" is not part of the challenge task and caused the error.
