Hey Chetan,

just to make sure: Are you talking about the first task? If so, you have to select all anchor elements that have a title attribute which you do like so:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
a[title] {
  color: darkred;
}

second one for text is not correct as per question and answer though it looks ok to me

Hey again Chetan,

for the second one you have to select all inputs with a type attribute set to text. You're however selecting inputs with the class of text.

That should work:

input[type="text"] {
  background-color: lightyellow;
}

oops i got it , thanks for the reply
