Hey Gibran,

What you have written is correct. It just isn't in the correct spot. Your mixin needs to be separate from the if/else conditional. RIght now, you have the if/else inside of the mixin, but it needs to be outside. So, just close off the mixin, and move the if/else outside, and you're good to go.

The corrected code is below for your reference. You'll see how the variable and if/else are now outside of the closed mixin.

@mixin cars($make, $color) {
  .#{$make} {
    border: 1px solid black;
    background-image: url("#{$color}.png");
  }
}

$time : morning;

a {
  @if $time == morning {
    color: red;
  }
  @else if $time == afternoon {
    color: blue;
  }
  @else {
    color: gray; 
  }
}

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:
