what is missing here in this code challenge?

CSS is being used to hide three items on the index.html page (two <li> elements and a <div> element). Use jQuery's :hidden pseudo selector and the show() method to display the hidden <li> elements, while leaving the <div> element hidden.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">
    <h2>Star Trek Characters</h2>

    <ul class="character-list">
        <li>Captain Jean Luc Picard</li>
