problems with .nav ul li string in jquery challenge

Looking for problems with the following code:

$(".nav ul li");

Instructions were to select all of the li elements within an unordered list in a class 'nav'.

1 Answer

The wording is a bit tricky, but the instructions mean a <ul> with the class "nav", meaning the selector they are looking for is this:

$("ul.nav li");
