Second Challenge Task

I am having trouble with the second challenge task. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong, but the editor is telling me that

$("nav ul li"); is incorrect jquery to select all li within the uls of the nav class. I have also tried: $(".nav ul li");

In CSS, you would select all of the ul items with the class nav by using a selector like this:

ul.nav {}

You can then select all of the li elements within it by doing

ul.nav li {}

JQuery selectors are exactly the same as using CSS, so your line should look like

$("ul.nav li");
