Hi there! It's not so much that the 660 media query is wrong, it's that the media query above it was never properly closed. You opened that media query, added an h1 rule, but then never closed it with a closing curly brace. You also did the same thing in your 660 media query. When I type out my curly braces I never type an opening curly brace without immediately typing a closing curly brace. Then I type out what's supposed to belong inside in that place. This helps diminish the risk of forgetting to close it later.

Essentially, both of your media queries are missing a closed curly brace at the end.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Jennifer, Thanks very much for the answer. I added the curly braces at the end of each but it didn't approve those changes. Where am I supposed to add them? Rich

This is it with your suggested changes:

@media screen and ( min-width: 480px ) {

h1 { font-size: 2.5em; } }

@media screen and ( min-width: 660px ) {

h2 { font-size: 1.75cm; } }

You corrected the closing curly braces, but you have now introduced a typo. In your original code, the h2 is set to 1.75em. But in your altered code, it's now set to 1.75cm. Note the difference between em and cm.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Jennifer, you are my hero! I have been studying this piece of code for hours and was ready to throw in the towel. You rescued me. Thanks very much, I really appreciate it. Rich
