The instructions say: "Create an attribute selector that targets img elements with a title attribute value of "avatar". Give the elements a border radius of 50%."

So there are these code issues:

  • the "target" is what the selector identifies, you won't use the actual word "target"
  • instead of "target", the attribute name should be "title"
  • instead of "img", the value to compare the attribute to should be "avatar"
  • there is no CSS "title" property, so that line inside the rule can be removed
