The instructions for task 2 specifically ask you to set the "font-weight" property, but this code is setting "font" instead. Also the "color" property line above it is missing the semicolon at the end, but you don't need to set that property for this element anyway.

For task 3, you will set the color, but in a different rule for another element.

Thank you
