JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Tracking Multiple Items with Arrays Build a Quiz Challenge, Part 2 Solution

What's wrong with my code? Can't seem to find the bug.

var questions = [
  ['How many states are in the United States?', 50],
  ['How many continents are there?', 7],
  ['How many legs does an insect have?', 6]
];
var correctAnswers = 0;
var question;
var answer;
var response;
var correct = [];
var incorrect = [];

function print(message) {
  var outputDiv = document.getElementById('output');
  outputDiv.innerHTML = message;
}

function buildList(arr) {
  var listHTML = '<ol>';
  for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i += 1) {
    listHTML += '<li>' + arr[i] + '</li>';
  }
  listHTML += '</ol'>;
  return listHTML;
}

for (var i = 0; i < questions.length; i += 1) {
  question = questions[i][0];
  answer = questions[i][1];
  response = prompt(question);
  response = parseInt(response);
  if (response === answer) {
    correctAnswers += 1;
    correct.push(question);
  } else {
    incorrect.push(question);
  }
}

html = "You got " + correctAnswers + " question(s) right."
html += '<h2>You got these questions correct:</h2>';
html += buildList(correct);
html += '<h2>You got these questions wrong:</h2>';
html += buildList(incorrect);
print(html);

If you run through the console you'll see an error @ line 23

listHTML += '</ol'>;

move the quote outside the tag so you have this

listHTML += '</ol>';

Thanks! Just found it now as well before I came back to the forum. Good old developer console. Should have used it in the 1st place. Thanks for your input as well!
