Hey there Tevin!

So, everything looks good in your code except for a few things! See below for the solution and an explanation!

.main-pg {
  text-align: center;
  border: red solid 4px;
}

So a few issues with the code snippet you posted. Inside your .css document you have <body> listed. This is an HTML tag and does not need to be added into the .css document. When you use the ".main-pg" selector, you are saying, "Hey CSS, i want you to style this class with the following properties and values!"

The second problem, is inside of your declarations, you have it written as:

.main-pg {
  border:solid red 4px;             
}

There should be a space between the property and the value. Whenever you style CSS, use the following format (spaces should be included):

selector {
  property: value;
}

I hope this helps, if you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!!

Cheers, and Happy Coding! :beers:

This is the third duplicate of this other question and this one.

But the issue is that you somehow got a stray HTML tag ("<body>") in your CSS file. Remove that and you should pass the challenge.

And you should always close rule blocks (with an end brace "}").
