CSS CSS Layout Basics Controlling Layout with CSS Display Modes CSS Display Modes Challenge

looking up display value for confirmation, it's display: inline; for .main-nav li. I've tried several combos.

Think there's a glitch

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

header {
  text-align: center;
}
.logo {
  width: 110px;
  margin: auto;
}

.main-nav li{
    display: inline;
}

The first task states: Display the list items inside .main-nav side by side. Did you see the preview?

Yes. So am I supposed to add on to the first .main-nav or add another attribute?
