question about challenge task4

I have problem writing the correct code. Anyone could help me? "Finally, let's reverse the column order by giving secondary the flexbox property and value that moves it to the beginning of the row."

my code: .secondary col{ flex:1; order:-1;}

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Flexbox</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
</head>
<body>
    <div class="main-wrapper">
        <header class="main-header">
            <ul class="main-nav">
                <li class="main-logo"><h1><a href="#">My Work</a></h1></li>
                <li><a href="#">Design</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Coding</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Writing</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Hire Me!</a></li>
            </ul>
        </header>
        <div class="content-row">
            <div class="primary col">
                <h1>I'm a Designer</h1>
                <p>I design beautiful user interfaces, then bring them to life with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I love including personal photographs of nature, people and everyday things in my designs.</p>
                <p>If you need a front-end designer for your next project, <a href="#">take a look at my work</a>, then <a href="#">get in touch</a>!</p>
            </div>
            <div class="secondary col">
                <h2>I Also Write</h2>
                <p>I like teaching others about the latest web in technology. So when I'm not designing or coding websites &amp; apps, you'll find me writing <a href="#">articles for my blog</a>.</p>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
</body>
</html> 
style.css
@media (min-width: 611px) {

    /* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
  .main-nav {
        display:flex;}

  .main-nav li{flex-grow:1;}
  .content-row {display: flex;}

  .secondary {
       flex:1;
       order: -1;}
}

Are you selecting

.secondary {

}

or

.secondary col {

}

you should only be selecting secondary. The problem could also be your flex order.

You wrote: my code: .secondary col{ flex:1; order:-1;}

You want to just use: .secondary { flex:1; order:-1;}

Yes, it should only be the class secondary.
