Class selectors

I need help... I can’t figure out how to write the class selector correct, even though I’ve rewatched the video!

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header>
      <div class="main-header">
      <span>Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>
    <p>
      Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
    </p>
    <a href="#">Find out more</a>
    <div>
      <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
      <p>
        As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.
      </p>
      <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>

The way you have written, that's how classes are given to elements.

But if you are referring to quiz questions then what is the question about?

It’s not a quiz.... it wants me to “ Give the header element a class attribute. Then, set the class value to main-header.” that’s what I did, but it says I’m wrong

It's saying give header element a class attribute.

So, it's going to be:

<header class="">

</header>

Then it says to set the class value to "main-header".

then just:

<header class="main-header">

</header>
