CSS How to Make a Website Styling Web Pages and Navigation Make a CSS Image Gallery

I don't understand what the question means

Add CSS that will allow all images to fill their parent element I don't understand what that means

It means that it either wants you to create a child element under the parent and then make sure it fits the parent or use an existing child element.

For example,

<footer> <!--- [parent element] --->
   <img> <!--- [child element] ---->
  <p> Your image html would go here. </p>

You can then add CSS by using the following,

footer img{
Inset CSS here

Hope this helps!

Andrew, img is a self closing tag. You can't do that.

This refers to setting the width of the images to 100%.

Just enter this CSS code and everything should work fine:

img {
    width: 100%;

I hope that it helps!
