Hi David,

The question is looking for margin right, not left for .col class without secondary.

.col {
  margin-right: -4px;
}

Hello James, your div has two classes secondary and col,that's two classes and it can have as many as you wants but if it's one than it should look like this secondary-col. you can try just target .secondary and then put the margin: -4px; you don't need to target both classes.
