  1. Maybe add two more list items
  2. add clear: left on every 2 list items
  3. Re-watch the video pertaining to that question, because you usually just do the same exact process as Nick.
  4. Maybe there is a software error and just re-start the coding questions

Hi Peter,

You're right, it is asking you to clear: left every fourth list item. There is a CSS pseudo selector that can help us accomplish this. You're going to learn it down the road anyway (it's part of the Front-end Web Development track which I believe you're on) and if you haven't already, and it is the :nth-of-type() selector. Guil explains it very well in this video.

After viewing that video, if you still have questions, I'd be happy to help :)
