Hi there, Vasil Ginin! You're doing terrific! Right now you are targeting all spans in the HTML, and as you can see there are 2 span elements here. There's one inside the header, and then there's another one inside the paragraph with the class "intro". The challenge is asking you to only target the one inside the class "intro".

Here's an example. Let's say I have a div with the class "main-div", and I only want to target paragraphs that are inside items with that class. I could do something like this:

.main-div  p {
    color: blue;

This selector will take all paragraphs that exist inside another element that has the class "main-div". I believe you can extrapolate from this how to target spans inside any given class.

Hope this helps, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:

This question needs more direction for us to be able to assist: 1) what are you stuck on, not the number of the problem but what specifically within there are you struggling with 2) what is the question 4 criteria? at this point you are asking me to go do the challenge and get to the 4th step to address it for you. Instead you should reiterate the question here and show in your code how you tried to address it. Then we can help you with syntax etc
