Code-checker keeps thinking I have the wrong font-size value!!! Can't continue!!

I think my code is correct... I have the font-size for the h1 element correct at 5rem like the post asks for... What's wrong with this? I can't continue with my track!

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
@media (max-width: 1020px) {
  .main-header {
    background-color: tomato;
    color: white;

@media (max-width: 768px) {
  .title {
    font-size: 1.4rem;
  .h1 {
    font-size: 5rem;
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>

        <div class="primary-content">
            <p class="intro">
                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.
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

Looks like you are using h1 as a class instead of the main-heading as a class for the font size.

The instructions ask you to "target the h1 element", but element selectors don't start with periods. As Krystal mentioned, the period makes it a class selector instead of an element selector.

Just remove the period and you should pass the challenge.
