        You know what my favorite restaurant in San Francisco is? The answer is that there are so many great restaurants that I couldn't choose one. But honorable mentions include <a href="#">Mr. Chow's</a>, <a href="#">Live Sushi</a> and <a href="#">Piccino</a>.

The code looks correct to me. Here's the answer that I had:

p {
  a {
    color: red;
  }
  > a {
    color: blue;
    &:hover {
      opacity: 0.5;
    }
  }
}

Try using a different browser if it continues to fail. Sometimes the browsers are causing this glitch.
