Last challenge task 5 of 5

Can't pass on this one, isn't that just adding overflow:scroll on that div.main? I even tried using * selector to choose all elements but it conflicts with other tasks.

Can you help me? Thanks!

Hi Patrick,

Note the direction '...IF..they are needed." :) Your solution currently displays them regardless of whether they're needed or not.

Sorry, here it is! The challenge is: Finally, add an overflow property that automatically provides scrollbars if and where they are needed.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

a { display:inline-block; width:100px; }

div.main { box-sizing:border-box; max-height:150px; overflow:scroll; }

Thanks! I haven't paid attention to the IF, now I could figure out a solution!
