practice selecting elements
Challenge Task 1 of 3 In this challenge, you're going to select various elements from index.html. First, select all links inside the <nav> element and assign them to the variable navigationLinks. (HINT: Use a descendant selector to match elements that are descendants of an element.)
Bummer: Are you selecting the links inside the '<nav>' element and assigning them to the variable 'navigationLinks'?
js/app.js index.html nav let navigationLink = document.querySelectorAll("nav"); let galleryLinks; let footerImages;
let navigationLink = document.querySelectorAll("nav"); let galleryLinks; let footerImages;

There are a couple of minor things here. One silly thing is that it's asking you to assign the result to "navigationLinks" (with an 's'), so you'll need to add an s to the end of your variable name for it to match exactly what the challenge is looking for.
Next, notice that it's looking for the links inside the <nav> element, not the <nav> element alone. So you're using the right method, but you'll need to isolate the links (which are the elements tagged with <a> in the HTML). Notice that they are not only inside <nav>, but inside <ul> and <li> as well, so you'll need to add those into the string (separated by whitespace as usual), which you are passing to the querySelectorAll.
I hope this helps! Good luck!
