        As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.

Hey Ion Vuluta,

You have written correct code for the first challenge. And you should write this code in your stylesheet CSS.

For the second task, you can target p descendant of main-content class ike this:

.main-content p {
  font-weight: bold;

Final challenge is similar to the second challenge. Here's how you target the p that is the descendant of the footer element:

footer p {
  color: slategrey;
