Thanks

 @media (max-width: 1020px)  {
   .main-header {
     background-color: tomato;
     color: white;}

   @media (max-width: 768px) {
     .title {
       font-size: 1.4rem;
     }
      .h1 {
         font-size: 5rem;
       }

Hi Lesley,

You're very close, just need to change two things:

  • Add a closing curly brace to both media queries.
  • Select the h1 element, not an h1 class. A period before h1 signifies a class. Remove the period to target the element.
