sass beginner

hello, I am starting to learn Sass. I am actually blocked in the last test of the phase 1. I don't understand where I do a mistake for the last question of this test. is there a place where they show us where and why we are doing wrong??

I have to use the post-selector &, in order to make the link in the footer in purple. I did the following code and I don't understand why is wrong. Also it looks ok in the on the preview.

Somebody could help me?

/* Write your SCSS code below. */ p{ a { color: red; .footer & { color: purple; }

} }

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

Without a link to the question its hard to establish what is required but here goes.

a { 
    color: red; 
    &.footer { color: purple; }

That's all i can figure out it may be from the code or maybe this

p a { 
    color: red; 
    &.footer { color: purple; }

Hope this helps

I think this is the one where it's wanting you to be overly specific by selecting only divs with a class of footer. Check this thread.

Problem solved. :) Thanks to both of you to answer so fast.
