The ul element takes an entire line by default due to its default behaviour of display: block.

You need to repeat what you did for the li elements in the previous stage by targeting your ul element and giving it a display property of inline-block as well.

Inline-block and inline, makes the element only appear as wide as its content. Block takes up a full line regardless of the content inside of it.
