What's wrong with my href?

They all look identical to me, and it's accepting my first href as an answer but not my second?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lists and Links</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="cakes.html">Cakes</li>
      <li><a href="pies.html">Pies</li>
      <li><a href="candy.html">Candy</li>
    </ul> 
  </body>
</html>
