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

a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;

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
