I'm not sure how to proceed.

Can I move forward without completing the exercise?

You just need to make the element with the class "main-nav" into a flex container. You do this by targeting the class and then setting the display value to flex. `This is done in your CSS file.

.main-nav {
  display: flex;
}

First you click on the style.css tab. Then you write a rule, as discussed in the video:

.main-nav {
  display: flex;
}

This rule selects (or targets) the elements that have a class="main-nav" attribute.

In this exercise there's only one such element:

<ul class="main-nav">
        <li class="name"><a href="#">My Site</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
      </ul>
