Hi, can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong here? It asks me "Did you specify the correct font size for "#logo"..

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
#logo {
    font-size: 1rem; 
  }
@media screen and (min-width: 421px) {
  header {
    background-color: #294969;
    color: ghostwhite;
  }
@media screen and (min-width: 769px) {
  #logo {
    font-size: 1.4rem; 
  }
  h1 {
    font-size: 4rem; 
  }
}

      <h1>The verdict is in. CSS Layout is great!</h1>
      <p>I’ve been working with CSS for a while now, and I have to say, it’s pretty awesome. I love being able to separate content from presentation, and to keep all my styles in an external stylesheet.</p>
      <p>I’ve had a pretty good grasp on the basics for a while now, but I needed to learn more about how to control layout with my CSS. Understanding CSS layout meant first exploring the parts of the CSS box model.</p>

      <h2>The CSS Box Model</h2>
      <p>There are lots of great resources online to help you learn the CSS Box Model. I like the CSS Tricks article <a href="https://css-tricks.com/the-css-box-model/" target="_blank">The CSS Box Model</a> by Chris Coyier. To quote the author:</p>
      <blockquote>At the risk of over-repeating myself: <strong>every element in web design is a rectangular box.</strong></blockquote>
      <p>That’s right! Every HTML element is considered by the browser to be a rectangular box.</p>
      <p>The CSS Box Model consists of four properties: content, padding, border, and margin. I've included a graphic from Coyier’s article to illustrate this principle.</p>
      <p class="clear">It’s pretty easy to understand the Content portion of the box model. The content is whatever your HTML consists of. It could be a paragraph full of text, or a bulleted list, or an image.</p>
      <p>Beginning developers may have some trouble keeping the other parts of the box model straight, so let’s examine them one by one.</p>

Looks like you're missing a bracket to close your first break point.

#logo {
    font-size: 1rem; 
  }
@media screen and (min-width: 421px) {
  header {
    background-color: #294969;
    color: ghostwhite;
  }
} <---------
@media screen and (min-width: 769px) {
  #logo {
    font-size: 1.4rem; 
  }
  h1 {
    font-size: 4rem; 
  }
}

Yeah media query brackets can make you go cross eyed sometimes.

This was just an experiment I tried, as I was running out of reasons why:

logo {

font-size: 1rem;

}

The code doesn't work without it either.
