How do you do the second step?

What specific elements does it want?

Hi Charlie,

The question is giving you clues on what elements it is referring to.

"Set the color of paragraphs to black using a hexadecimal value."

'p' is the selector for the Paragraph element.

Here is the solution to the second step of the challenge.

p {
  color: #000;

'color' is the style attribute you are effecting. Then you add the '#' before the Hexadecimal value. I'd explain hex values, but it might be easier to just follow this link... (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexadecimal)
