I have entered the css selector of :

$(".nav ul li"); translates to "select a <li> tag that is inside a <ul> tag that is inside another tag with the class of .nav."

The challenge is asking for a <ul> tag that has the class .nav. Either of these would work:

$(".nav li");
$("ul.nav li");

Thank you. I did try your first suggestion at did not work but the second code worked

$("ul.nav li");
