Hey Timothy.

The challenge wants you to select all the anchor tags that have a title attribute. So, first you need to select the element (a) and then add the attribute selector which is enclosed in square brackets (make sure there are no spaces).

a[title] {
  color: darkred;
}

Hope that helps. Keep Coding! :)
