I displayed list items side by side. Exactly what question was. I used display property. Why it doesn't let me pass it

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

header {
  text-align: center;
}
.logo {
  width: 110px;
  margin: auto;
}

.main-nav,
li {
  display: inline-block;
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Getting Started with CSS Layout</title>
    <link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Varela+Round' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
</head>
    <body>
    <div class="container">
        <header>
            <img class="logo" src="city-logo.svg" alt="logo">
            <ul class="main-nav">
                <li><a href="#">Ice cream</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Donuts</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Tea</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Coffee</a></li>
            </ul>
        </header>
    </div>
    </body>
</html>

The comma causes ".main-nav" and "li" to be considered as two separate selectors. So this rule applies to any element with the class of "main-nav" and every list item (li) on the page.

But the task is to create a rule that only targets "the list items inside .main-nav", which can be done with a descendant selector which uses a space instead of a comma.
