Here is my code at the end of Task 4. This passes the validation.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-heading {
  text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31;
}

.title {
  text-shadow: 1px 3px 0 #e59740;
}

.main-header {
  box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa,
              inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;
}

Thank you very much this one worked

If you declare the property twice, the second one overwrites the first one. You'll have to combine the two styles on one property with a comma.

box-shadow: 0px 2px 15px #aaa, inset 0px 0px 60px 5px firebrick;
