Select the links inside the nav element and set their font weight to 800. Then, set padding on the top and bottom to 15

I could just be missing something small, not sure what im missing. went through the other answers first did what it said still not working for me.

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}


nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

The tasks asks you to select the link elements inside the nav element, the li tag represents list-item elements, not link elements. Links are represented by the a (anchor) tag. This is a pretty common mistake to make since li could also easily be seen as an abbreviation for link.

Anyway if you create a new selector that actually targets the links within nav "nav a" and then put your font-weight and padding rules inside of that then you will be able to pass the task.

Target the links in the nav. nav a { font-weight: 800; padding: 15px 0;}
