there're several things you need to do for this challenge.

Give main-logo a top offset of 25px and a left offset of 25px. Then, give main-nav a bottom offset of 30px and a right offset of 25px.

You need 2 selectors -- .main-logo and .main-nav, and assign appropriate offset values to each.

.main-logo {
  top: --;
  left: ---;
}

.main-nav {
  bottom: ---;
  right: ---;
}
