Add CSS that will allow all images to fill their parent element.

I put:

img { max-width: 45%; }

You forgot to provide a link to the actual challenge, but...

...a max-width of less than 100% would guarantee that the element will not fill its parent.

The correct property is max-width, since it says allow it to fill, not require it to fill. But to allow the element to completely fill the parent, it must be 100%.

img {
  max-width: 100%;
