Ok, I do not know if I am just overlooking something but how do you select all <a> tags inside a <ul> w/ ID #gallery

What am I missing? Please Provide some clarity

app.js
let navigationLinks = document.querySelectorAll('nav a');
let galleryLinks = document.querySelectorAll('a #gallery');
let footerImages;
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">

You have the right terms, but the target should come after the container, just as you did in task 1.

let galleryLinks = document.querySelectorAll('#gallery a');
