You already have the class selected, now you need a descendant selector to isolate the span tag within that class.

You can either go with .intro span or .intro > span, both of which would select every span inside .intro (the second would only cover direct children though). Check out some of the CSS pseudo-selectors like :nth-child(n) to grow your selecting toolbelt.
