why not put the list tags in the array in the first place

genius
const peopleLis

I’m not sure why but my list didn’t get rendered in the browser window in this exercise, is there a reason?
My below code did pass:

const people = ['Rowe', 'Prevost', 'Gare'];
const peopleLis = people.map(person =>
  // expression goes here:
  return <li>{person}</li>;
);
// ReactDOM.render goes here:
ReactDOM.render(<ul>{peopleLis}</ul>, document.getElementById('app'));
