Hey Jevon,

Challenges are very specific in what they ask you to do and expect when checking your answer. For Task 2, the challenge instructions specifically say:

Leave the alt attributes blank, and don’t add any captions or links. Just the images!

But you added and surrounded the image with links. Once you remove the links, the code will pass. :)

Keep Coding! :dizzy:

Change your code to this and you will pass (basically, take the parts out that make it a link; you'll add that part in a later part of the coding challenge):

<li>Portfolio</li>
<li>About</li>
<li>>Contact</li>
