Are you sure the link above points to the right challenge? This code looks like it may be for a different one.

But assuming it's correct, there are a few issues here:

  • task 1 asks to target the header element instead of a class named "header"
  • task 2 asks you to target an unordered list instead of a paragraph
  • task 2 also asks for a change to the background color instead of the font weight
  • task 3 asks you to target "the paragraph that is a descendant of the footer"
  • there's a typo in "slate*grey", it should just be slategrey
  • there are no instructions that ask for a span target, or to color anything lightblue
