Whenever I submit my answer for task 5 it says task 4 is no longer passing.

Everytime I submit my answer for task 4 in the HTML code challenge it moves me onto task 5 and then when I try and submit my work for task 5 it says task 4 is no longer passing.

The ul tag just before the </body> tag is missing it's closing slash - you need to replace the last <ul> with </ul>

It looks like you forgot to close the brackets for your unordered list:

<ul> <li> Shapes</li> <li> Colors</li> </ul>

It looks like you started an additional ul element instead of closing the first one.

The closing tag needs a slash in it. ("</ul>"). Otherwise, it appears to be two nested lists and both are incomplete.
