Are you copying code from a workspace project?

It looks like you're on task 2, but you have a lot of code added that's not part of this task (some perhaps not for this challenge at all). You'll get a lot more value from the challenge if you complete the steps yourself, one at a time.

You've already set the hex color for black elsewhere, but you have not yet written a rule for paragraph elements. Paragraphs have the tag designation "p".

Hey!

p{ color:#000000; }

Good luck
