Don't understand the question.

Set the color of paragraphs to black using a hexadecimal value. How do I write it into the code. Thank you.

a {
  text-decoration: none;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
h1, h2{
  color: #fff;
body p {
  color: #000000;

You can also use 3 digits instead of 6 if all are the same #000000 can be #000 the other is not wrong it just means writing less code hope this helps.
