What am I doing wrong?

This is for the 4th code challenge in Advanced Sass, where I am asked to use a post-selector ampersand to add an exception to an element. What am I doing wrong?

My code looks like this:

p {
    a {
       color: red;
           .footer & {
              color: purple;
           }
       }
  > a {
    color: blue;
    &:hover {
        opacity: 0.5;
    }
  }
}

I have gone back through the video to try and find something different, but I got nothing. Help?

This question is very specific, it asks for all <div> elements with a class of .footer not for any element with a class of footer.
