What you have shown is only part of a CSS style (or is that the problem?). So for now, I can give you some general hints.

You said you were asked to "edit the padding in links to 10px". Links are usually implemented using anchor (<a>) tags. So if you created CSS to add padding (in all directions) of 10px it would likely look like this:

a { padding: 10px; }

If that doesn't get you through the challenge, try telling us exactly which course, challenge, and task you are working on, and show us all of the answer you gave.

That sums it up :)
