I've tried many combinations of the parent and child selectors inside the document.querySelectorAll property. Help?

The element I'm trying to select is nested .gallery <ul> <li> <a ...>

I'm supposed to be able to "document.querySelect" all the "links" in the ul under the gallery id. would it be document.querySelectorAll('.gallery ul li a') ?

You're close, but the token for an ID is "#". A period is the token for a class name.

Also, you don't have to list all the intermediate elements in a descendant selector. Just the outer container and the actual target.
