Unable to include hover state

Task 4 of the Code Challenge for Stage 5 of Front-end Web Development asks that we add a hover state to the nav link. I written the CSS as follows:

nav:hover { color: #32673f; } I believe this is the correct code, but I'm getting an error msg that asks if I've added the hover state.

Any suggestions?

You are missing a hash symbol at the beginning. See if the below passes.

The pseudo class should be applied to the anchor element after selecting the nav element.

nav a:hover {
    color: #32673f;

Hi Dustin,

Not sure how this would pass. It's a nav element not an element with an id of "nav"

Should be nav a:hover

That's correct. Sometimes people implement the navigation using a div and label it nav but in this scenario it's actually the HTML5 element. Thanks for correcting that.
