HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Organize with Unordered Lists

Need help listing images with no alt attributes.

I think I know how to list images and without alt attributes but I continuously keep getting it wrong. Listed below is my code.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>
    <section>
      <ul>
        <li><a href="img/numbers-01.jpg">
            <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt="">
           <p></p>
           </a>
          </li>
        <li><a href="img/numbers-02.jpg">
            <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt="">
           <p></p>
           </a>
          </li>
        <li><a href="img/numbers-06.jpg">
            <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt="">
          <p></p>
           </a>
          </li>
      </ul>

You can leave the alt attr out completely. Also, did you know that your <a> tag includes the img as wel as an empty paragraph?

This code challenge doesn't require hyperlink tags (a href). Remove the 'a href', 'p', and 'alt' attributes, and you should pass. Should look like this:

    <section>
      <ul>
        <li>
            <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg">

          </li>
        <li>
            <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg">

          </li>
        <li>
            <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg">

          </li>
      </ul>
    </section>

You're just making it too hard on yourself for the purposes of the challenge. Each list item only needs

<li><img src="img/image-01"></li>

You don't need the link, paragraph element, or blank alt tag.

Ok thanks, but isn't <p></p> an empty paragraph? The 2 part of the challenge says to leave the paragraph empty.
