Hiya Elkhan! To change the style of any element on HTML page in your stylesheet, first you're gonna have to access that element in your stylesheet. Its pretty easy and its done by selecting that element and mention it in your style sheet, followed by "curly braces" and squeeze your style in curly braces. Heres how your code should look like in your stylesheet:

h1 {
   color: purple;
}

thank you so much Ari, it worked and I l now how to control it. thanks again man

thank you guys, for the help now I got the gist of it
