Selectors challenge task 2

Create an adjacent sibling selector to target the <p> element that immediately follows the <h2>. Set the background color to lightblue.

I entered the code

h2 + p { background-color: lightblue;

Any ideas why this wouldn't work?

Hi Jack,

Try refreshing and doing it again. I just copied and pasted you css into task 2 and it works.

Also, I think you meant to post some inline html tags in the beginning of your question. You can use single backticks for inline code.
