Hi,

the property margin: is the shortend version of:

style.css
.your-class {
  margin-top: 
  margin-right:
  margin-bottom:
  margin-left:
}

if you use the shorthand version:

style.css
.your-class {
  margin: 1px; /* apply margin top, right, bottom, left */

  margin: 1px 2px; /* the first value apply for top and bottom, the second value apply for left and right */

  margin: 1px 2px 3px; /* the first value apply for top, the second value apply for left and right, the third value apply for bottom */

  margin: 1px 2px 3px 4px; /* apply value in clockwise order: top, right, bottom, left */
}

so if you need to style only the top margin it's better to use the margin-top property:

style.css
.your-class {
  margin-top: 
}

The challenge is asking you Select the unordered list nested inside the nav element, so you don't need to select also the anchor element.
