.prev()

You've just learned about the next() and prev() methods. Use one of them to traverse from Wade Christensen to James McAvoy in the list of students.

index.html

app.js
$('li').eq(2).prev('li').prev('li');
$('.student-list li').eq(1);

I tried the first line in a workspace and it appears to work just the same with or without arguments in the prev method. However with arguments the challenge presents an error:

Bummer: Did you unintentionally supply arguments to the "prev" method call on the jQuery object with a selector of "li"?

Task 2 accepts the code without arguments:

$('li').eq(2).prev().prev();

Line 2 in your code selects Alena Holligan and isn't needed.
