You were nearly there, just don't forget to include the parentheses after the linear-gradient! To clarify, you add the parentheses after linear-gradient, because inside you must define atleast 2 color stops for your gradient.

This is my answer but i can't pass it to the next question background-image: linear-gradient(to top, #cfcfcf, purple);
