$(".nav").find("ul>li"); :point_left: This selects li's in a ul's that are descendants of some element with class nav. Also, even if you fix it, I don't think this particular challenge is prepared to evaluate an answer using the find function.

What the challenge asks for can be done more simply with a single selector:

$("ul.nav li");

Also remember to put this after the answer to task 1.
