Same as the tag you use in html ( minus the two angle brackets < > ).

<p>Make me black!</p>
p {

Each of those css properties will change the font to black, choose one.

The HTML tags for paragraphs are <p> ( or just p in CSS).

Hi Jason, in CSS to target an element in the HTML file you simple type the name of the tag without the angled brackets, or type selectors. Example to target the <p> paragraph element, just type p followed by two curly brackets.

p { write rule here: color; }
