Looks ok but I think you might have deleted some code from an earlier challenge?

Or try adding a space between the colon and the color, I think Treehouse is having trouble parsing it otherwise although it displays fine for me

a: link { color: darkorange; } a: visited { color: firebrick; }

I changed it exactly the above one. the same error appears. I think there might be a bug. where can i inform this?

The only space you want to add is as Victoria suggested between the colon and color. The following will pass:

a:link {
  color: darkorange; 
}

a:visited {
 color: firebrick; 
}

Thank you, Kris and Victoria. It's worked.
