Not sure what the question is referencing by separating values in this particular task

I believe I am simply misunderstanding this prompt

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-heading {
  text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31,
  box-shadow: inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;

.title {

the 4th task is targeting main header, not main heading. it wants you to chain box shadows together using commas, so you have the right shadow, just append it to what you have in main header, so the syntax would be:

box-shadow: 0 0 0 0 red, inset 0 0 0 blue;

like that, except with whatever values and colors are required. you're just chaining them together, separated by commas.
