Pretty sure I got this one right. Perhaps a bug in the checking code.

Try just using "@media (min-width: XXXpx)" for your media queries. I didn't have a problem with that passing.

I can assure you that the checking code is OK.

As i see in your CSS code you are in the 2nd step and missed the:

main-nav{
float: left;
}

In your /* Tablets to Desktop */ code.

I´m gonna leave the hole CSS code of the challenge, just in case u need it.

/* Phones to Tablets */
@media only screen and (min-width: 481px) {

.col {
  float: left;
}

.main {
    width: 65.957446808511%;
}
.secondary {
    width: 31.914893617021%; 
}
.secondary,
.extra {
    margin-left: 2.127659574468%;
}
}

/* Tablets to Desktop */
@media only screen and (min-width: 769px) {
  .logo {
  float: left;
}

  .main-nav{
  float: right;  
  }

  .extra {
    width: 23.404255319149%;
  display: block;
}

.main {
    width: 40.425531914894%;
}
}

@media only screen and (min-width: 1000px) {
  .wrap{
    width:980px;
  }
}

Best Regards.

Haven't watched the course you're referring to, but I'm pretty sure you're just missing the word and in this line in your CSS:

@media only screen (min-width: 769px) {

Right under the /* Tablets to Desktop */ comment.
