Hi Alfred,

The challenge is referring to all paragraphs.

Use the p tag to do this

The hexadecimal value of black is #000

Hope this helps

I have written the required CSS rule below, it is the first time I have used Markdown so I hope it turns out how I want it to. I had to watch the lesson three times before I understood how to use hexadecimal colours, if you struggle I suggest you watch the lesson again.

The challenge wants you to turn the colour of all paragraphs to black using hexadecimal values.

p {
    color: #000;

As you can see I have used p as my selector, this will apply the CSS rule to all paragraphs.

you are a star
