Why the event listener was not applied directly to the <ul> element?
I'm confused about two things:
1) The elements we're interested in are the <li> elements, so why not to place the event listener to the parent <ul>?
2) If we apply the event listener to the ancestor of <ul>, couldn't that affect the other elements in within the ancestor scope?
