Create a new rule that targets the span element inside .intro. Give the span element a bold font weight and an italic

I tried giving the span in index an ID, but wasn't accepted. Any suggestions?

<!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>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    <div class="primary-content t-border">
      <p class= "intro">
        Lake Tahoe is one of the most <span>breathtaking attractions</span> 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 href="#more">Find out more</a>
    <footer class="main-footer">
      <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
      <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.intro {
 font-size: 1.25em;
  line-height: 32px;

You have to use the CSS selectors to target the element without adding new classes or ids to the HTML. How could you access the SPAN, which is inside the P with class "intro"? Think about how you could select the P first and then how you would modify it to specify the SPAN inside.

I tried using comas and just putting span in with .intro like this: .intro, span {

}. No go.

You don't need a comma, just use a space
