CSS CSS Selectors Going Further with Attribute Selectors and Pseudo-Classes :first-child and :last-child Challenge

How to use border-style property from :first child selector?

Can you check my border-style property: none;?

It is telling me to use all li elements to "none"

Any help would be awesome!

style.css
/
li:first-child {
border-style: none;
border-radius:5px 0 0 5px;
}

The instructions talked about "setting border to none.", but the code above is setting "border-style" instead.

Also, there's a stray slash ("/") character at the beginning of the CSS, which will cause the selector to be ignored.

0   /
1    li:first-child {
2   border-style: none;
3   border-radius:5px 0 0 5px;
4   }

a) the css you wrote at position 0 has a "/" that should not be there b) the css at position 2 you wrote "border-style" you should just have used "border"

so your code would be

li:first-child {
border: none;
border-radius: 5px 0 0 5px ;
}
