CSS CSS Foundations Selectors Basic Structural Pseudo-Classes

firstchild task

The task is as follows:

"Select the li that is the first child of the ul. Set the color to white and background color to black."

I wrote this code:

li:firstchild { color:white; background-color:black; }

but it says it's incorrect. What am I doing wrong?

Oops, silly mistake. Thank you.
