You only need to use the variables that were already set. You can use the first to get the ul tag, then the second to use that ul tag and get the id of the first li element. When selecting an id you need to use the # symbol.

var myList = document.querySelector('ul');
var firstListItem = myList.querySelector('#first');

myList.removeChild(firstListItem);
