Hi, I am having an issue with getting past a challenge task, seems that task 2 and 3 are conflicting with each other

The following seems to conflict the requirement for even child to be dodgerblue and last child to be azure. Because the last child is also an even child. I cannot satisfy both.

li:first-child{ color: white; }

li:nth-child(even){ color: dodgerblue; }

li:last-child{ color: azure; }

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

li:first-child{
color: white;
}

li:nth-child(even){
color: dodgerblue;
}

li:last-child{
color: azure;
}

The instructions for task 3 are to set the background color to dodgerblue. You set the color.
