You need to replace the em unit based value for the .title and h1 elements. The hint is in the question: Replace with a root relative unit. This would be the rem unit since it is always relative to the root element (html) of the document.

Below is an example of an element using a rem unit for the font-size:

p {
  font-size: 1.25rem;
}
