It looks like you modified the rule you created in the first task instead of adding a new rule to go with it;. The first rule handles the "float", the new one will only need a "clear".

Also, the instructions ask for a "selector that targets the fourth img child element first", but the code shown here targets the first one first instead.

Thanks, simple mistake but it took me a lot of time to figure it out, would've taken even longe if it weren't for you.
