There are errors in the following line:

.main-logo, .main-nav, .primary-col, .secondary-col { position: absolute; }

.primary-col and .secondary-col should not have a hyphen as .primary, .secondary, and .col are 3 separate classes. For this part of the Challenge we only need to set the .col class to absolute position.
