How to get past this challenge ?

app.js
//Select the navigation
var navigation = document.getElementById("navigation");

//Select all listItems from the navigation
var listItems  = navigation .children;


//When a navigation link is pressed
var linkListener = function() {
  console.log("Listener is clicked!");
}

var bindEventsToLinks = function(listItem(a)) {
  var anchor = listItem.querySelector("a");
 //Select the anchor
  //Bind the linkListener to the anchor element (a) 
  anchor.onclick = linkListener;
}

for(var i = 0; i < listItems.length ; i++) {
    bindEventsToLinks(listItems[i]);

Line 13. As first task you had to
append .children at line 5

var listItems  = navigation .children;

As second task "On line 14 of the app.js, we want to get the anchor (the a element) from inside the listItem." you just need to fix line 14.

var bindEventsToLinks = function(listItem) {

and not

var bindEventsToLinks = function(listItem(a)) {

@Time, I appriciate your help but your answer did not help me.

Here is the actually answer:

var anchor = listItem.querySelector("a");
