You have the wrong class name.

The second class mentioned in the instructions is "logo" (not "logo-nav").

  1. footer-nav should be . footer-nav{ float: right; }

Izzy, the "clearfix" code was supplied by the challenge. And "::after" is a pseudo-element, and those are supposed to be designated with two colons. (see the MDN page for official info)

The footer-nav part was already correct, but you're suggesting floating it in the opposite direction. Are you sure you're looking at the same instructions?

still it gives me incorrect answer

This is what I code;

.clearfix::after { content: ""; display: table; clear: both; }
footer-nav { float: right; }

.logo { float: right; }

please Help.

.footer-nav{ float:left }

.clearfix::after { content: ""; display: table; clear: both; } .footer-nav{ float:left; } .logo{ float:right; }`

You had it correct the first time, but now you're missing the period that should start ".footer-nav" and you have the wrong direction value on the float property (perhaps you got some bad advice):

.footer-nav {
    float: left;

Also, when posting code, use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down: (as I have done here).

Still did not allow me. I still got the incorrect one.

.footer-nav{ float: left }

.clearfix::after { content: ""; display: table; clear: both; }

.footer-nav { float:left; }

.logo { float: right; }

Jayson, that code should pass task 1. (I tried pasting it into the challenge and it did pass).

But you have the "footer-nav" rule twice, you only need one of them.
