I checked back through the videos and it does not show how to do this iin them. Paragraphs are not even shown yet in the video. What exactly is it asking for?

a {
  text-decoration: none;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;

to style a paragraph's color you write this:

p {

color: black;

hope this helps.

or if they ask you for the hex value, google hex value for 'whatever color'


Not a problem.
