CSS How to Make a Website Responsive Web Design and Testing Write CSS Media Queries

Media queries syntax

@media screen and (min-width: 660px) { body { background: darkgreen; }

I keep getting prompts about declaring darkgreen even though I have

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

}

.contact-info {

You are so close! The problem is that you didn't close your media queries. Add in the closing brackets, and everything will pass:

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {
  body {
  background: navy;
  }
} /* add this bracket here */
@media screen and (min-width: 660px) {
  body {
  background: darkgreen;
  }    
} /* and add one here */

As Jeff pointed out you are missing the closing brackets for each of the media queries

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) { /* opens the whole media query */

   .css-selctor {put your CSS in here
      } /* closes the CSS Selector*/

} /* closes the whole media query */

Thank you guys...I noticed after sending it
