/* all paragraphs*/
p {
  color: black; 

/* paragraphs with class paragraph*/
.paragraph {
  color: red;
<p>my content</p>

<p class="paragraph">my content with class</p>

You can also use the hexadecimal value of (short) #000 (long) #000000 instead of the word black. In your code sample you are missing the pound (#) sign.

First u need to use the right selector for paragraphs. U use #paragraph but u should just use p to target all the paragraphs in the html file. Next u need to use the hexadecimal value for black to set the paragraphs to black. This is #000000 or #000 in short. If u are not sure about the code for a color u can just google it. Don't forget the # sign.

p {
color: #000;

Good luck!
