CSS Sass Basics (retired) Getting Started with Sass Advanced Nesting

I am unclear what is wrong with my code for this Sass request that I create a hover style for direct descendants of a.

p { a { color: red;

a { color: blue; &:hover { opacity: 0.5; } }

Hey Timothy, firstly there was no real need to add an 'a' tag that wasn't a direct descendant. But the real issue was simply that you forgot one closing bracket.

p {

a { color: blue; &:hover { opacity: 0.5; } } }

Hi Motty,

The 1st task of the challenge requests that all <a> tags within <p> tags are colored red. So I think you need that first nested selector. The html even has a link that's two levels deep and should be colored red.

Thanks fellas
