You're missing a curly brace to close off the previous media query.

I checked your answer and found following STRANGE result: If - in your answer - you put spaces inside media query, it fails verification by treehouse: This passes: @media (max-width:1020px) and this fails: @media (max-width : 1020px)

 /* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

@media (max-width:1020px){ 
    .main-header {
        background-color : tomato ;
        color : white ;
     }
} /* <== missing '}'. When Script and/or code is not "wellformatted", its not readable, 
                  hard to maintain and very easy to have errors like this */

@media (max-width:768px){
    .title {
        font-size : 1.4rem;
    }
    h1 {
        font-size : 5rem;
    }
}
