We want to add an exception for <a> tags that are are in the <div> with a class of .footer: those links should be purple

Trying to pass this challenge and I am not sure where Im going wrong. Im assuming I just have the '.footer &' section in the wrong area? Any help would be appreciated :)

/* Write your SCSS code below. */

p { a { color: red; } .footer & { color: purple; }

a { color: blue; &:hover { opacity: 0.5; } } }

To target the <a> tags inside the .footer you could nest it inside the .footer class like so

.footer & { 
            a { color: purple; }
