Why dont you guys add hints to these challenges anymore. It only people like me ask and wait for more questions.

I dont understand this challenge.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <h2>Student List</h2>

    <ul class="student-list">
        <li>James McAvoy</li>
        <li>Alena Holligan</li>
        <li>Wade Christensen</li>
        <li>Matt Krzyzynski</li>

    <script src="app.js"></script>
$('.student-list ul').on('click', function(event){


There is a hint when you check your work that says Bummer: Did you call jQuery with the argument "'.student-list'"?

If you remove the ul after .student-list, that should resolve your issue.

Back in the beginning sections there used to be an added hint bar that gave extra details to the challenges. They stopped doing it after a certain point.
