The challenge wants to set li:nth-child(even) and li:nth-child(odd) ** background-color ** and from your code i saw you set color instead, so maybe that is confusing the program.

You're right Dimitar, I am giving myself a facepalm right now....indeed it says the background color. Sometimes the eyes see what they want to see :) Thanks a lot!
