Hey there boss! You are doing a good job so far! Some things to consider regarding your css and dom elements, you gave your ul a class of main-list, however, in your css you are saying any ul within this class of main-list. If you want your list to be 30% of the page width, you can simply remove the ul, li from your .main-list and you will see your list shrink to fit 30% of the page view. I apologize for not knowing the exact requirements of the challenge.

If you want your logo to be on the left, and your list on the right, you need to apply inline-block display rules on the elements you want side-by-side. An img is a block level element, and a ul is a block level element.
