Repeated questions for Code Challenge:Additional Pseudo-classes

In the code challenge for Addtional Pseudo-classes, I am getting the same questions that were asked for Pseudo-classes -:nth-child.

I am not able to get past the 2nd question. It marks it as wrong even though it is right. Here's the question: Create a new rule that selects the 3rd list item only. Set the background color to the HEX value FF6347

li:nth-child(3){ background-color:#FF6347; }

It marked this answer right in the earlier code challenge but is marking this wrong in this code challenge.

Either way, the code challenge should have new questions and not repeated ones.

You are correct, the question should not have been repeated - it was a bug. Things should be back to normal now. Please e-mail us again if you have any further issues!

This is also happening to me on task 2 of the code challenge.

li:nth-child(3) { background-color:#ff6347; }

I'm pretty sure it's a bug.

I am not sure what the problem is, unless you didn't keep the previous code. I tried what you put in, and although it looks like it should work, it didn't. I would suggest trying to contact somebody who works for Treehouse to see if perhaps it is a bug.

And mentioning your comment about new code challenge questions, you DO have a point. However, I would like to say that if they chose to do that, there would probably be more errors in code challenges. (No offense to anyone at Treehouse. I love you all!) Also, if someone needed help, and they posted it in the forum, it may take more time for someone to get back to them since it may take longer for the question to randomly appear.

Sorry I couldn't help you with the question very much!

I think too it's a bug and I sent an email to Treehouse with the link to this discussion. Got an automatic email saying that they are on holiday leave till Dec 30th. Probably they will get back to me in the next few days. I will post it here if the support team gets back.

Alyssa Gowan - And about new questions, what I meant was that they should have relevant questions for the content related to additional pseudo classes and not repeat the questions which are related to the previous section i.e. nth-child pseudo classes. The questions currently being asked are not related to the content discussed in the Additional pseudo classes.
