'overflow: scroll' function not working?

The code challenge prompts: "add an overflow property that automatically provides scrollbars if and where they are needed."

The prior 4 prompts were coded correctly , I simply added the 'overflow' line for this prompt, and I keep getting an error. Any ideas?

nav a {
  display: inline-block;
  width: 100px;
}

.main {
  max-width: 400px;
  -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  max-height: 150px;
  overflow: scroll;
}

Here's a clue:

Finally, add an overflow property that automatically provides scrollbars if and where they are needed.
