Hey Gamaliel. :)

I see that you've added the 'nth-child' pseudo class, however the question is asking you to add the 'first-child' pseudo class. While nth-child is certainly an alternative method (so kudos to that!) - unfortunately the work-checker will return an error unless first-child is used.

So, simply replace...

li:nth-child(1) {
  color: white;
}

with...

li:first-child {
  color: white;
}

Hope this helps! :)
