Nan,

That task wants you to set the font-weight and padding properties on the links (i.e. the a tags) inside the nav element, not the list items (i.e. the li tags). You have:

/* you're setting the right properties, but on the wrong elements (this selects the list items, not the links) */
nav ul li{
display: inline-block;
  font-weight:800;

  padding:15px 10px 15px 10px;}

You need:

/* selector and style for the list items */
nav ul li {
    display: inline-block;
}

/* new selector and styles for the links */
nav ul li a {
    font-weight:800;
    padding:15px 10px 15px 10px;  
}
