hello, here is code I used to pass this quiz. The difference seems to be the addition of 'images/' in the background image url, which I doubt matters, the quotes around morning and not nesting the if, else if, else statements. I believe the @if block should be closed } before an @else if can be added and so on.

@mixin cars($make, $color) {
  .#{$make} {
    border: 1px solid black;
    background-image: url("images/#{$color}.png");
  }
}

$time: morning;

@if $time == morning {
  a {
    color: red;
  }
} @else if $time == afternoon {
  a {
    color: blue;
  }
} @else {
  a {
    color: grey;
  }
}
