How do I add a class called "main-pg" to a paragraph element?

    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">

I suggest rewatching the lessons. They'll most certainly go over this.

What have you tried so far?

<p>class="main-pg" my amazing website</p>

Okay I see, <p class="main-pg">. Thanks for the help.

So close! Because class is an HTML element attribute, it must (sorta) scoped to it. That means it must be fully enclosed within that element. Just plop that class part within the <p> tag and you're good to go! Here's an example:

<element class="example">Content goes here ...<element>

Hope this helps! Keep at it!
