hello again. you are so close. just missing a :

@media (max-width 1020px){ /* here is where you forgot a semicolon*/
  background-color: tomato;
  text-color: white;

it should be

@media (max-width: 1020px){
  background-color: tomato;
  text-color: white;

i hope this helps

In this case, adding the semi didn't fix it, I still can't see my error

Hey, I solved the mystery with this code: Thanks for the generosity of your much appreciated help

@media (max-width: 1020px){ .main-header{ background-color: tomato; color: white}; }
