it would be easier if we get the pdf version of the task. I am not sure what you want me to do with it ?:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.footer-nav {
  float: left;

.footer-nav, li {
  display: inline-block;
  float: left;

.logo {
  float: right;

.clearfix::after {
  content: "";
  display: table;
  clear: both;

Hi Robert; In this code challenge, they were asking you to put those list item (li element) inside .footer-nav (ul element) side by side by using the floating property not the display or even not both of them. Therefore, we use a descendant selector to match all of the <li> elements inside the <ul> element by putting a space between these 2 elements but not a comma (,). So the right code for display a list item side by side is the following: .footer-nav li { float: left; }
