CSS CSS Layout Basics Controlling Layout with CSS Display Modes CSS Display Modes Challenge

The <ul> with the class main-nav is a block-level element by default, so it takes up the full width of its container. Let's set .main-nav to be as wide as the content inside it. Change the display of .main-nav to the display value that generates a block element that doesn't take up a full line.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

header {
  text-align: center;
.logo {
  width: 110px;
  margin: auto;

.main-nav li {
display: inline-block;

.main-nav {
display: inline;

The inline display value does not generate a block level element. The display value that generates a block-level element that does not actually take up a full line is inline-block so your rule must look like this:

.main-nav {
    display: inline-block;
