The "repeat" function takes 2 arguments separated by a comma: the first is the number of times you want to repeat, and the second is what to repeat.

Hint: not everything in the column list will be part of the "repeat".

I appreciate you help but it is not working .

grid-template-columns: repeat(4, 1fr);

I did include the what repeat and number of time but the quiz is why answer not that.do u mind illustrating it in code

I figured it is asking only repeated the one punch need to be repeated

grid-template-columns: 2fr repeat(4, 1fr) 2fr;

Thanks for giving me the clue . I hope feature student who take this get easy time.

You got it! But it might be a bit of a "spoiler" for other students to post the final solution.
