Why am I getting this error? `Uncaught SyntaxError: Unterminated template literal` Tried to follow along and no dice

const fruitList = "<ul>" + "<li>Kiwi</li>" + "<li>Lime</li>" + "<li>Pineapple</li>" + "</ul>";

const vegetableList = ` <ul> <li>Spinach</li> <li>Broccolli</li> <li>Onion</li> </ul> ';

document.querySelector('.fruits').innerHTML = fruitList; document.querySelector('.vegetables').innerHTML = veggieList;

const vegetableList = ` <ul> <li>Spinach</li> <li>Broccolli</li> <li>Onion</li> </ul> ';

It appears on this line you are starting with a backtick and ending with a single quotation. I think you mean to end this with another backtick. Hence why it is saying "Unterminated template literal`"

Doh, thank you!
