It's because you've left your display: flex propery in your selector with the class of secondary.

Take that out and you'll be good to go. :-)

yes...it's work!! Thank you,

Hi Edwin, you don't need to apply the property display with the flex value on the .secondary class, as It's a flex item (its parent has already the property display with the flex value applied). Remove this, and that should work.

Otherwise, you could as well put .content-row on the same line as .main-nav as they share the same css rules. (minor thing here but that's good practice).

Here is the css

@media (min-width: 611px) {

    /* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
  .main-nav,.content-row{
   display:flex; 
  }

  .main-nav li{
   flex-grow:1; 
  }

  .secondary{
   order:-1;
  }

}

got it...Thank you,
