CSS CSS Selectors Advanced Selectors :nth Pseudo-Class Challenge

clear:left

Hi,

I have no idea what's wrong in the code. The float seems ok. Does anyone have a solution to this?

style.css
/* Write the CSS in the media query below */

@media (min-width: 607px) {

  img {
  float:left;

  }

  img:nth-child (3n+4) {
  clear: left;

  }



}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>

<head>
    <title>Selectors</title>

Hi Pawel,

You have the actual code correct with one minor error. CSS and most other languages are picky about white space when declaring , in this case, a selector and adding a parameter in the psuedo class. So take a look at the nth child parameter and white space. I'll comment if you have any issues figuring it out.

Take care and Happy Coding!

Hi Christopher,

thank you so much for your support! I was really frustrated with this and wouldn't think about the white space, but I have changed the code and...it finally works.

Once again thanks for your help :)
