Hi there, cheng en hsieh! You're doing great! You're off by a whole period/full stop . . The second part of the challenge asks you to target the h1 element. Not a class of "h1". When making selectors we use a preceding . for classes, a preceding # for ids and nothing at all for basic elements.

You wrote:

    font-size: 5rem;

But you meant to write:

h1{ /* note the removal of the . in front */
    font-size: 5rem;

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thanks for Jennifer Nordell 's efficiency reply! I might forget difference between targeting a element and a class, targeting an element is less use in least classes.
