As you quoted them, the task 4 instructions tell you explicitly to "Add a background-size property.".

The other settings are fine in the shorthand. And functionally, including this with the other shorthand settings works fine; but the validator is checking that you implemented it this way.

I believe you are experiencing a problem because of the shorthand use of background in this challenge. Try and use the full background properties to see if you can pass the challenge.

Thanks that worked
