I don't really understand the question...

I'm not exactly sure what this question is asking me to do

style.css
/* Write the CSS in the media query below */

@media (min-width: 607px) {
  img {
    float: left;
  }
  img:nth-child(3n+4) {
   clear: left;
  }
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Selectors</title>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
</head>
<body>
   <h1>My Gallery</h1>
    <img src="thumb-forest.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-resort.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-trees.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-falls.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-view.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-sunset.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-lake.jpg" alt="">

    <img src="thumb-peaks.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-falls.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-resort.jpg" alt="">
</body>
</html>

Let's look at the task again.

The instructions say, "Replace :nth-child with the pseudo-class that only targets a specific type of child element."

So you want a pseudo-class that works like "nth-child", but instead of targeting all child elements, will only target those which are all of the same type. Do you remember something like that from the course?

I'll give you another hint: it was discussed in the video titled :nth-of-type. :wink:
