Hi Phumlani

You don't need to have both the 'hover' and 'selected' selectors selected:

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

thanks for your assistance

You cannot have a space between the element and the pseudo selector. Also the task does not say anything about the links having a class of selected, you are meant to target all hovered a nested in nav elements. Like this

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

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