I've created a nested list under Shapes 10 different way and it keeps saying "Try adding nested list under Shapes list"

Is this module broker?

Remember to put the nested list INSIDE the List Item tag, not after it.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>HTML Lists Challenge</title>
  </head>

  <body>

    <h1>HTML Lists Challenge</h1>

    <!-- Write your code below -->
    <ol>
      <li>Stop</li>
      <li>Drop</li>
      <li>Roll</li>
    </ol>

    <ul>
      <li>Shapes

Ah ha! I was doing it a little different:

      <li>Shapes</li>
        <ol>
             <li>item1</li>
             <li>item2</li>
        </ol>
       <li>Colors</li>
    </ul>

Now I see what I was doing wrong. Thank you!
