Okay. This one is talking about the a tags nested within your nav tags, or more simply, the links that appear inside your nav tags. In CSS you can target a certain tag nested inside another certain tag like this.

nav a { color: #fff; }

This is the answer. To understand it, it might be helpful to think of it backwards. The tags you want to change are your a tags, but only ones which are nested inside your nav tags. This way you can change the colour of these a tags without changing the other a tags on your page.

I hope that helps. :)
