I would encourage you to give it a shot yourself and see how far you can get. If you feel stuck, here are some hints and references.

W3Schools has good reference pages for :first-child, border, and border-radius.

The first step is to select the elements. In this case, remember that you can select by class using . notation, and that :first-child is paired with the element you're trying to target - not with its parent element.

border-radius is applied as top-left > top-right > bottom-right > bottom-left, so keep that in mind when setting the 5px since you're only meant to be changing two of the corners.

If you're still feeling lost or have follow up questions, please let me know. Otherwise, good luck and happy coding!
