I'm not sure why you have the ... at the top of the media query but you don't need it for this challenge.

Also to change text color it's just color:

Everyone has made that mistake before.

Can you post your new code? When I ran it without ... and color: white it passed.

@media (max-width: 1020px) {} .main-header { background-color: tomato; color: white;

Is this for task 1? You don't need the {} after the max width but you need to close } at the very end.

@media (max-width: 1020px) {
 .main-header { 
    background-color:  tomato; 
    color: white;
}

Then for part 2 just create a new media query for 768px and target the .title class and h1 element and change their font-size

You’re welcome. Don’t give up on css. It can be very frustrating at times.
