Do not include the "second box-shadow word" this is why the comma is there to connect the two. Read the instructions. If tired walk around and come back and reread the question and pay close attention to details. Programming is about details. Read the the last sentence. Answer

.main-header {
    box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa,
  inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;
}
