Philip,

Element selectors should not be prefaced with a "dot" (only classes).

@media (max-width: 768px) {
    .title {
       font-size: 1.4rem;
    }
    h1 {
       font-size: 5rem;
    }
}

This should result in a pass.

note, I have put the h1 size in both the original media query, and when that didnt work I created its own seperate media query (pictured in the above code), and I have not been able to pass it through!!

damn thank you so much! im slow!

No problem! Sometimes it's the simplest things we tend to overlook.

Be sure to mark this thread 'answered' (so I get points). ;-)
