border-top-left-radius: 20px; border-top-right-radius: 10px;

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
main-nav.li:first-child {
  border-style: none;
  border-top-left-radius: 5px;
  border-bottom-left-radius: 5px;
}

I think you just need to add the "." in order to actually select the "main-nav" class :)

Since main-nav is a class, you'll need to write a dot before it. <li> isn't a class, it's a tag. I'll show you how it's supposed to look like.

.main-nav li:first-child { border-style: none; border-top-left-radius: 5px; border-bottom-left-radius: 5px; }

Since main-nav is our class, we write a dot before it. The <li> tag isn't a class so we just put a space between the .main-nav class and li. If you add a background to this one now you should see that the border-radius is working properly.
