Ah.

To select every fourth child, you need to add the 'n' to the number, and use 'nth-child', like so:

#gallery li:nth-child(4n) {
    clear: left;
}

Rewatch the previous few videos to let this sink in!

Did you alter any other code? When I copy and paste your declaration inside the media query into the challenge, it passes just fine.

Thanks Erik, but my problem is with part #2 of the refactoring problem for Media-Query (for this 'Front-End Web Development Course' with Mr. Pettit):

"inside the media query - clear every 4th list item in the gallery ..

then I do this:

#gallery li:nth-item(3) {width:28.33%; clear:left;}

then I get more silly objections in red like:

"Did you set clear:left on every fourth gallery list item?"

WHAT's GOING ON HERE?

thank you very very much !!!!
