Hello Alexandru,

For this task they want you to use the children property on the "section" variable to select all the child underneath "section".

var paragraphs = section.children;

Guild talks about the children property in this video, starting at about 4:35 if you want to see him apply it: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/getting-all-children-of-a-node-with-children

Hope this helps and Happy Coding!
