          As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.

Well this is strange. For some reason the challenge doesn't like the space between width and : in your code. Odd that it didn't care for the other challenges but would for this one. You can pass the challenge with this correction:

width: 75%;

But in my opinion this is a flaw in the challenge.

This might seem weird but rewrite it. :)

I tried your code and it didn't worked. I deleted .main-content class and re-wrote it.

and it worked. :)

Hi Mahyar,

Could you please post:

  • What the specific task you've been asked to complete is so we can help you without digging through the lessons? (e.g. "Change the font size to 26px")
  • A link to a snapshot of the workspace you're using for this project (there's a snapshot link in the top right corner of your Workspace - the icon looks like a briefcase with a dot in the middle - it's the left-most of 3 dark grey icons).

It would give us the information we need to properly help you with your question.

Thanks, Rich
