How to include "pseudo-class?

I believe this challenge is saying I need to include pseudo-class? If it's true, how do I do it?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    <div class="primary-content t-border">
      <p class="intro">
        Lake Tahoe is one of the most <span>breathtaking attractions</span> located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
      <a href="#more">Find out more</a>
    <footer class="main-footer">
      <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
      <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>

a pseudo-class has a colon (":") in front of it.

Fixed it thx!

For this I have tried this:

a link{ text-decoration: underline;


and this:

a :link { text-decoration: underline;

} and this : :a link{ text-decoration: underline;


Nothing works, I can't move on because I need to finish this. This is really frustrating.

There should be a colon between the tag name and the pseudo-class name, but no space.

A space makes it a descendant selector, which is not what is needed at this point.
