confused task 4 of 4

Task: We want to add an exception for <a> tags that are are in the <div> with a class of .footer: those links should be purple. Use the post-selector ampersand to achieve this.

My answer:

p {
    a {
           color: red;

               .footer & {
                color: purple;

         > a {
               &:hover {
                opacity: 0.5;


Error: Bummer! Please use the ampersand selector following the selector for the .footer div.

Hi Neslee,

The challenge wants you to be more specific. It's a div with a class of "footer"
