What element is this question trying to get me to place the ul,h1 and p into?

I tried putting the ul, h1 and p between the <section>, <article> and the <aside> elements but that wasn't the answer. Am I missing what the question is asking me?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>My Portfolio</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <section>
      <ul>
        <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>          
      </ul>
      <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
      <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>

      <h2>Welcome</h2> 
      <p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget feugiat ante faucibus.</p>
      <ul>
        <li><a href="#">Recent project #1</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Recent project #2</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Recent project #3</a></li>     
      </ul>
    </section>
    <p>&copy; 2017 My Portfolio</p>
    <p>Follow me on <a href="#">Twitter</a>, <a href="#">Instagram</a> and <a href="#">Dribbble</a></p>
  </body>
</html>

The terminology does take a bit of getting used to.

Martin is correct, and this little "semantic element summary" may help as you proceed further:

  • "a group of introductory content" :point_right: <header>
  • "a major section of navigation" :point_right: <nav>
  • "the main content of the <body> of the page" :point_right: <main>
  • "standalone sections of content" :point_right: <section>
  • "self-contained pieces of content" :point_right: <article>
  • "content that's indirectly related to the main content of the page" :point_right: <aside>
  • "information about the site, copyright data or related links" :point_right: <footer>

Thanks Steven, that was very helpful!
