CSS CSS Basics (2014) Enhancing the Design With CSS Media Queries

Specifying font-size for .title

I can't see where the font-size is incorrect. Please show an example of how the code should be written.

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
@media (max-width: 1020px) {
  .main-header {
    background: tomato;
    color: white;
  }
  @media (max-width: 768px) {
    .title {
      font-size: 1.4rem;
    }
    h1 {
      font-size: 5rem;
    }
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>

        <div class="primary-content">
            <p class="intro">
                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.

Hi, you forgot the curly braces that close the media queries.

@media (max-width: 1020px) {
  .main-header {
    background: tomato;
    color: white;
  }
}
  @media (max-width: 768px) {
    .title {
      font-size: 1.4rem;
    }
    h1 {
      font-size: 5rem;
    }
}

The font size is working but you have the definitions inside the media query blocks. Try to resize the browser, and you will see under 768px the font size "reacting" to the css...
