I don't understand what it means of setting the color of anchor elements inside the nav element to white?

There is quiz to set the color of anchor elements inside the nav elements to white. I looked at the preview, the links of nav has gone, once I set nav. I don't get it. and I don't get the concept of anchor exactly.

a {
  text-decoration: none;

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;

p {
  color: #000;

nav {
  background-color: #fff;
  color: #1363d2;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

nav a { color: white; }

you are targeting something that is inside of the nav.

<nav> // <=== This is the nav element
  <a></a>  // <=== This is the anchor element inside the nav element

So your CSS should start like this. You will need to review the videos to figure out the rest

nav a {}


to change color for anchor element inside nav you need to target:

nav a { color: #fff; }

But don't forget to change the background color on nav because it's set to white at the moment and the anchor elements won't be visible.
