Hi Timothy,

You're just missing closing braces on each of your media queries:

@media (max-width: 1020px) {
  .main-header {
    background-color:tomato;
    color:white;
  }
}
@media (max-width: 768px) {
  .title {
    font-size: 1.4rem;
  }
  h1 {
    font-size: 5rem;
    }
}

Hope that helps!

Agree with Cena. I had the same problem.

Don't forget the curly braces. The proper formatting is this

@media (max-width: 1020px) {  ***CSS HERE*** }

@media (max-width: 768px) { ***CSS HERE*** }
