The "ul" tags define the whole list and there should be only one pair of them, surrounding the entire list.

Individual items inside the list are "list items" and will have "li" tags.

Also, the instructions did not ask for numbers to be added to the names. Doing things other than in the instructions can sometimes confuse the validation mechanism.
