CSS CSS Selectors Advanced Selectors :nth Pseudo-Class Challenge

hi guys what could be the problem here??

i did task one correctly but when i wanted to do task 2 it gave me that error.

style.css
/* Write the CSS in the media query below */

@media (min-width: 607px) {
       img:nth-child(3n+4) {
       float: left;
} 
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Selectors</title>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
</head>
<body>
    <img src="thumb-forest.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-resort.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-trees.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-falls.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-view.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-sunset.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-lake.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-beach.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-bay.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-peaks.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-falls.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-resort.jpg" alt="">
</body>
</html>

task one question:Inside the media query, create a new rule that targets img elements. Then, float the images left.

@media (min-width: 607px) { img:nth-child(n) { float:left; }

task one said its the correct answer but on attempting question two it gave me an error "oops task one could not pass.

Here is the code I used to get the correct answer for the question on Challenge Task 2 of 3

"We want three floated images per row. In the media query, create a pseudo-class selector that targets the fourth img child element first, then every third img that follows. Then, add a clear property that clears the left float."

@media (min-width: 607px) {
  img {
    float: left;
  }
  img:nth-child(3n+4) {
    clear: left;
  }
}

Hi Nyasha,

You appear to have changed the same selector for task two, for each task the challenge is expecting a new selector so you should have the following from task one and then your code for task two follows it.

@media (min-width: 607px) {
  img {
    float: left;
  }

  /* Task two here */
}

Happy coding!

thanks man finally got it!!

could also do this :

@media (min-width: 607px) {
  img[src*="thumb"] {
  float: left;

  }
}
