Make sure you're using the right 'display' value

I've tried this out in the workspace and it works, but for the challenge it's wrong? Did I mistype something?

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

header {
  text-align: center;
  width: 110px;
  margin: auto;
.main-nav li {
  display: inline-block;
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Getting Started with CSS Layout</title>
    <link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Varela+Round' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <div class="container">
            <img class="logo" src="city-logo.svg" alt="logo">
            <ul class="main-nav">
                <li><a href="#">Ice cream</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Donuts</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Tea</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Coffee</a></li>

It looks like you've passed task 1. For task 2, you need a rule that targets the .main-nav element itself instead of the list items inside it.

Yeah I caught the typo. The logo class was missing an opening brace. Somehow it got deleted as I was doing the challenge. Thanks for the quick response!
