The format for transition is: transition: <propertyToApplyTransitionTo> <timing>. There are other options but these are the two we are concerned about at the moment. You can learn more from a previous lesson - https://teamtreehouse.com/library/fill-and-stroke-transitions, be sure to check the teacher's notes for reference links.

So you are requested to use fill as the property, which is placed before the 1s (timing). You still need both, you are only missing the first. Your answer going to be similar to: transition: <property> 1s;
