Create a new rule that targets the first 4 list items only. Set the font weight

I have a simple unordered list with like 10 list items. I must change the font weight to bold, but only to the first 4 li in the ul.

i tried with this:

ul li:nth-child(-n+4) {font-weight: bold}

The "-1" ( or -) normally should do the trick. But still, the checker says that is wrong. What i am missing?

I tried with your code, and it passes.

ul li:nth-child(-n+4) {font-weight: bold} Looks like your missing the semicolon ; after bold ul li:nth-child(-n+4) { font-weight: bold; }
