You have 2 identical media queries and the first one doesn't close properly.

You start the group declaration for "#gallery li" and close it but then immediately start on the second media query without closing the first query.

I don't see any problem in your nth-child selector.

Hi Henrique,

This is part of your problem. You could fix it by properly closing off the 1st media query but since they are both the same it would be better to put both of your css rules in the same media query to avoid that duplication.

Your other problem is that you can't have a space after nth-child

Hi Enrique,

#gallery li:nth-child(4n+4):

The syntax is :nth-child(an+b) b = the offset value. It determines the FIRST value selected, or the starting point. This means, :nth-child (an+3) the 3rd list item will be the starting point. a = the cycle of elements to select after the b value is declared. n = is the counter.

Here is an example: In a list that contains 12 items:

li:nth-child(2n+4):

Means the 4th item in the list is the starting point and every 2nd is chosen after that.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
