You were close! You have an extra space after the p element in your css, so right now you are essentially telling the css to look for the p element, and then look for the .main-pg class inside of it. Instead you want to tell the css to look for the p element, and then the .main-pg class on that element like this:

p.main-pg {
  border: 4px solid red;
}

Sorry, I'm so new to this. Thank you so much! Now i can continue. ♡
