If you're on Challenge Task 1 of 3 (Add a class called "main-pg" to the paragraph element), then you need to do basically what it says. You need to add a class attribute (e.g. class="value") to the existing paragraph element (e.g. <p>).

For example, if you wanted to add a class called "fancy_class" to a "<span>" element, then you'd do this:

<span class="fancy_class"></span>

You can read more about the class attribute and how its used at the following websites:
