nth-child help

Hello, I don't quite understand what I am doing wrong. The code I am putting in seems to be giving me the results that it is asking of me, but it is telling me that I am not fulfilling the requirements. Could someone help me on this or push me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance.

Although what you have works the checker will specifically look for :first-child in task 1.
