The challenge wants you to only use css code, so you don't need to edit the markup in the html file. Nevertheless, you have incorrect syntax with adding the unneeded class "bold" on the span element. To properly add a class to an element you add class="bold" for this example. However like I said this is completely unneeded and out of the scope for this challenge.

For this challenge, all you need to do is look at your css selector that is targeting the span element, you have it almost right, but since you won't have a class on the span, you just need to target it by its element name instead. Great work on editing the font style with the correct property name and value.
