Not sure what u did with the 2nd task but u deleted 'linear-gradient' somehow. Also make sure u put a comma just after a word, then a space followed by the next word as it won't accept the task otherwise. (as u have steelblue ,darkslateblue)

.main-header{
  background-image: linear-gradient (to top, steelblue, darkslateblue 90%);
}

Good luck!
