Can anyone explain why my dark green color inside the break point of 660px does notwork; according to the challenge?

Looks like the brackets in the media rules are screxed up. Try this:

@media screen and (min-width: 480px){
  body {
    background: navy;
  }
}
@media screen and (min-width: 660px) {
  body {
    background: darkgreen; 
  }
}

You have the curly brackets in the wrong place

@media screen and (min-width: 660px) {
  body {
    background: darkgreen; { // this is where you made the error. You didn't put the ending closing curly bracket 
  }

it should be like this

@media screen and (min-width:660px) { //opening curly bracket
   body { background:darkgreen;}
}//ending curly bracket
