why is three elements targeted to become flexbox

.main-header, .main-nav, .row{ display: flex; }

in class main-header is element .main-nav. Do we always have to do it this way or its fine when we just target .main-header and .row as a flexbox.

It's been a while since I took this course, but you might try a little experiment that might answer your question. Remove the ".main-nav" target from that rule, and see if anything changes when you save the edit and then refresh the preview.
