First challenge, you need to select ul in nav and set margin top and bottom to 0 and left and right to 10px. <br>

nav ul {
  margin: 0 10px;
}

Second challenge, use the same selector (nav ul) then apply the padding to 0

Third challenge, you need to select different selector (nav li) and set the display to inline-block. The last challenge, you need to select different selector again (nav a) and set the font weight and padding.

I tried the third one but it won't work, wouldn't it be display: inline-block; ?
