Your're almost there but you don't put any spaces in your selector, otherwise CSS won't recognise it as a pseudo element.

nav.selected, nav:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

This is how you need to declare it. :) Good luck.

You referring to this?

/* nav link */
nav a, nav a:visited {
  color: #fff;
}

/* selected nav link */
nav a.selected, nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}
