In this task you have to use CSS to make the H1 purple. So click the CSS tab and type this code:

h1 { color: purple; }

h1 will target the h1 in the HTML (every h1 on the page) and the color atribute will tell it that the color is about to change. then you add purple (or in the future any other color) and close it with a ; then the color will change.

Hang in there! every beginning is hard but you will succeed! And don't forget to vote my answer as the right answer :)
