CSS CSS Layout Basics Controlling Layout with CSS Display Modes CSS Display Modes Challenge

Can't figure out the correct display value...

The second part of this challenge task is asking me to "Change the display of .main-nav to the display value that generates a block element that doesn't take up a full line."

I tried changing to inline, which is what is shown in the video, but it still doesn't seem to be correct. What am I doing wrong?

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

header {
  text-align: center;
.logo {
  width: 110px;
  margin: auto;

.main-nav li {
    display: inline-block;
<!DOCTYPE html>

    <div class="container">

            <ul class="main-nav">
                <li><a href="#">Ice cream</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Donuts</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Tea</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Coffee</a></li>

Hi Zachary,

The previous question asked you to add it to .main-nav li, the current question is asking you to add it to .main-nav

It confused me too, I kept changing .main-nav li to .main-nav and wondering why it didn't work.

You need to apply it to both the ul and the li's within it. For example:

 .main-nav li, .main-nav {
    display: inline-block;

Hope this helps :)
