Hey ُُEhsan Shamat,

I just found out a tiny error on the first challenge. Whilst selecting descendant selector li elements you only need to provide a single space.

Here's the final code for the first and second challenge:

.main-nav li {
  display: inline-block; 
}

.main-nav {
  display: inline-block;
}

Hope this helps!

Hey ُُEhsan Shamat,

For the second challenge, you only need to target <ul> element with the class of .main-nav and change it to inline-block from default block-level element.

Here's the final code for second challenge:

.main-nav {
  display: inline-block;
}

To learn more about inline-block, check out this website: https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_inline-block.asp

Hope this helps!
