Creating a sub-menu in the nav-bar

I am trying to create a submenu for my nav bar, however it doesnt show when i hover on 'subjects'. I can see it is under the 'subjects' heading but i am not sure how to make it appear when i hover on 'subjects'. I have been at this for a while now with no success. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks.

enter code hereHTML code:
<header class="navbar">
<div class="container flex">
 <img src="fclLogo1.jpg" alt="FCL Logo" />
            <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Features</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
              <a href="#">Subjects</a>
