I'm struggling with this part of the challenge.

It looks like an <h1> made its way inside the parent body. Now our :nth-child selector no longer targets the desired combination of img child elements. Replace :nth-child with the pseudo-class that only targets a specific type of child element.

style.css
/* Write the CSS in the media query below */

@media (min-width: 607px) {
  img {
    float: left;
  }
  img:nth-child(3n+4) {
   clear: left;
  }
}

This is the correct answer to your problem.

@media (min-width: 607px) {
  img {
    float: left;
  }
  img:nth-of-type(3n+4) {
   clear: left;
  }
}

You're probably looking for the :nth-of-type psudo-class. This will target the nth child of the particular type you're targeting.

Edit - If you're interested, there's an article on this on CSS Tricks about the differences and how they work.

@media (min-width: 607px) {
  img {
    float: left;
  }
  img:nth-of-type(3n+4) {
   clear: left;
  }
}

just have to to replace nth-child for nth-of-type everything else still the same...espero te sirva.(Hope it works out for you.)

img:nth-of-type(3n+4) { clear: left; }
