Hi there! You've not defined 4 columns but rather 2 columns each taking up 2fr which is half of all the space given that they're the same size. The challenge asks you to define four columns with the first column being twice as large as each of the other three. To do this, we would make the columns like this:

grid-template-columns: 2fr 1fr 1fr 1fr;

The first column here will be twice as large as the three columns that follow it.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
