So the goal here is to get the picture's border-radius to be 50%, which is round. First of all, your selectors are off. Here are the basics again:

// To select a class we use: 

// To select ID we use:

// To select tags we just write the tagname :

//To select attributes we write them like so: [attribute="value"]
a[src="asdf.com"] //Will apply styles to all anchorelements with the src="asdf.com"

in our case here, you want the image, we can use both src and avatar here So you would like to select it like so : img[title="avatar"] {}

What you're doing is saying "Hey! Browser! i want the img-element with an attribute "title" with the value of "avatar" to recieve these styles!"

so you write your selector, then you have curly-braces which the styles will then go into

img[title="avatar"] {
  border-radius: 50%;

If there's something you're not clear on, just comment again and i'll try to explain as best i can Happy coding!

thank you. I tried your suggestion. now it's stuck on the border radius. it is set to 50%
