The <ul> with the class main-nav is a block-level element by default, so it takes up the full width of its container. Let's set .main-nav to be as wide as the content inside it.

Change the display of .main-nav to the display value that generates a block element that doesn't take up a full line.

Essentially this code challenge is asking you to repeat what you've just done for the list items, this time for the main-nav class.

There's a couple of different ways of doing this, you can add a new selector to the css, like so:

header {
  text-align: center;
}

.logo {
  width: 110px;
  margin: auto;
}

 .main-nav li {
  display: inline-block;
}

 .main-nav {
  display: inline-block;
}

Or you can make it more concise by grouping the css selectors as per below:

header {
  text-align: center;
}

.logo {
  width: 110px;
  margin: auto;
}

 .main-nav, .main-nav li {
  display: inline-block;
}
