Getting an error on the right answer to exercise on extending placeholders

I'm getting an error that the .p inside .messsage-box is not red, and asking if I extended %warning correctly.

I tested this solution out in the workspace and it generated the correct result.

%warning { font-weight: bold; color: red; } .message-box { .p { @extend %warning; } }

What am I missing?

style.scss
.roundy {
  width: 150px;
  border-radius: 50%;
}

.img-author {
  @extend .roundy;
}

%warning {
  font-weight: bold;
  color: red;
}

.message-box {
  .p {
    @extend %warning;
  }
}

Ah,all you have to do is delete the . before the p and that should make you pass like this :

.roundy {
  width: 150px;
  border-radius: 50%;
}

.img-author {
  @extend .roundy;
}

%warning {
  font-weight: bold;
  color: red;
}

.message-box {
  p {                               // like this right here and you should pass
    @extend %warning;
  }
}

Yep, it's not a class selector, .'s go only before classes
