Depends on what the challenge is asking you to do. What exactly is the question?

Hi Jorge Andrés ,

Task 2 is asking you to target p elements that are adjacent siblings of an h2

~ the tilde symbol is the general sibling combinator.

+ the plus symbol is the adjacent sibling combinator.

In this case, the challenge is looking for adjacent siblings.
