Here is an example that should work, maybe you can figure out where you went wrong? :) Keep up the good work :)

<body>
  <style> 
    body h1 {
      color: green;
    }
  </style>
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
</body>

Can you show us your code and the question?

This is all very confusing the lesson does not say anything about the body tag. That the selector code should be body h1. But thank you Elvind for the right code that works. <body> <style> body h1 { color: green; } </style> <h1>Nick Pettit</h1> </body>

There is no need for the body selector. While Elvind solution is correct, what they ask in the challenge is this:

<body>
<style>
h1{color:green;}
</style>
<h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
</body>
