p { & > a { color: red; } }

Hi Sergio,

The code that you have here does not pass task 1. Assigning "Best Answer" here will be misleading to anyone else that's stuck on this challenge.

If you have successfully passed this challenge then you should at least make an edit to your answer so it contains the correct code.

Sergio's code above does not work and he should of never marked himself as best answer. Here is the correct code.

p    {
      a {
        color: red;

Tried this. It didn't work.
