2 things:

  • you need to add a decimal for milliseconds, otherwise it's 4 seconds and 5 seconds.
  • you need to switch the order. They want 5 milliseconds for the background and 4 milliseconds for the color.
.content {
  transition-property: background ,color;
  transition-duration: .5s, .4s;}

.invert:checked ~ .content {
    color: #fff;
    background: #373737;
}

thank you
