Looks fine to me I just tried and got it to pass with this

    p { color: #000; }

Maybe a gremlin in the system if you try refreshing the browser and re start the quiz it should allow you past.

The code is correct. I've noticed sometimes if I've previously entered incorrect answers, subsequent correct answers are marked wrong. Refreshing the browser usually fixes this.

}

notice the space between the : and the #
