The instructions for task one say "Add a class called "main-pg" to the paragraph element."

So the important things to notice are:

  • the class should be added to the paragraph that is already there, you don't need to make a new one
  • the name of the class won't be "class-name", it will be "main-pg".

Try again with those things in mind and I'll bet you get it.
