It looks like task one is no longer passing.

Any attempt that I have made on completing the second task comes back with Opps! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <h2>Student List</h2>

  <ul class="student-list">
    <li>James McAvoy</li>
    <li>Alena Holligan</li>
    <li>Wade Christensen</li>
    <li>Matt Krzyzynski</li>

  <script src="jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>
  <script src="app.js"></script>
var $newStudent = $("<li>Sam Smith</li>").append(".student-list");

the answer is $('li').eq(2).prev().prev();

prev() already selects the previous element right in front of the eq(2) so you don't need to put prev('li') in there.

You can start by removing line 2 in your app.js, which is code from a previous jquery challenge in this course. Don't see how that got in there.

Let me know if this helps here
