"Use a method to traverse and select the anchor."

The challenge is to select the anchor tag inside of listItem.

var anchor = listItem;

So I have

var anchor = listItem.getElementByTagName("a");

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Joshua,

You should use the .querySelector() method and instruct it to for for the a tag.

var anchor = listItem.querySelector('a');

Bug here, I believe. listItem isn't defined elsewhere in the JS. Doesn't ask us to create it either. (Perhaps it should?)
