No HTML code shown to assist in addressing the proper selector for images!

There is no html code to refer to so as to address the images with the proper selector. Am I supposed to memorize that code from last code challenge?!

Mohsen,

In this case, assuming you're referring to the first task in the challenge, they are simply asking for you to select all images generically; not via a class or ID.

Thus, you would do the following for the first task:

img {
max-width: 100%;
}

Hope this helps!

Remember: you can also style elements based on their element type, if you want to apply those styles to all the elements of said type. So, for example here, if you know you're going to want all of your images to be responsive, then setting all images with the img tag to have a max-width of 100% is easier than going through and applying a class to each image to achieve the same result.

Thank you Erik. After I sent the question for discussion, it occurred to me to do exactly just that. I think just by formulating the question/problem and writing it down helped me to see things more clearly. I have already moved way past this stage now. Still it was useful to follow your line of thought in your generous answer.

But still I hold my opinion, the html file should have been included, as this is the norm, you wouldn't code your css without having access to html code!

Glad to hear you were able to resolve your issue! And yes, indeed, sometimes forming the problem into written or even spoken words can help debug it.

Happy coding!

Wish you Happy coding too. I do enjoy learning and coding in all the programming languages I went through so far from C to JavaScript with some of its spin offs, Ruby, Python and of course HTML5, CSS to even the Frankenstein of programming languages PHP inspite of its inconsistency and inherent bugs!
