CSS CSS Selectors Advanced Selectors :nth Pseudo-Class Challenge

I don't understand where the clear is supposed to go

I think I've got the float correct, but it's not clear to me where the clear in Task 2 is supposed to go...

The error message is not very helpful, either (it just says that Task 1 is no longer passing. Whatever that means...).

/* Write the CSS in the media query below */

@media (min-width: 607px) {
  img:nth-of-type(3n+4) {
    float: left;
  img:last-child {
    clear: left;
<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <img src="thumb-forest.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-resort.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-trees.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-falls.jpg" alt="">

the 1st task asked you to target images with a left float, so no need for the nth-of-type on the first selector...this will complete task 1.

img { float: left; }

task 2 says to clear the float on the 4th image and every third image after, not the 'last child'. You will need to put the right code in the parenthesis after the selector to target the 4th image and every 3rd image after. You may want to review the video on nth child selectors:

img:nth-child() { clear: left; }

Good luck

Ahh, thanks. I guess I didn't understand the question correctly, then...
