CSS Sass Basics (retired) Advanced Sass Concepts Working with Media Queries

Not sure how to solve this

I've tried several times on this and still can't seem to get it to pass. Following is the code and question:

Open a scope on an <ul> with the ID menu. Inside that, open a scope on a <li>element. Using Sass nesting, add a media query so that the <li> elements will have an attribute of text-align: center when the media is screen and the<li> has a max-width of 500px.

/* Write your SCSS code below. */

@media screen and (orientation: landscape){ img { width: 360px; } }

.menu li{ @media screen and (max-width: 500px){ li{text-align: center;} } }

You used the class operator instead of the id operator - .menu should be #menu

I feel like a big idiot... Thanks Sean

You don't need to repeat the li in the media query as you're already in the scope for that li.

when I remove the li like this : .menu li{ @media screen and (max-width: 500px){ text-align: center; } }

it fails and tells me I need to "select 'li' tags within the 'ul' that has an ID of '#menu'. Set their text-align property to center."
