Hi Clayton,

As I said before, the question is asking you to create a new rule. You are just modifying the rule you had before.

To solve this challenge you need to end up with two rules:

  1. a rule that applies to .intro and has the font-size and line-height settings;
  2. a rule that applies to the span element inside intro which sets font-weight and font-style
