Hi Ishmael!

Since the TEXT is supposed to wrap around the image's right side, the image should float LEFT.

Like this (task 1):

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
img { // image is an element, not a class, so you don't need the dot
  float: left;

And for task 2, you want to clear the float (set the clear property to both, which clears the float above the p element), like this:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
img { /*** Task 1 ***/
  float: left;

.clear { /*** Task 2 (clear IS a class, so you do want the dot) ***/
  clear: both;

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
