Why isn't it taking my code to change font-size to 0.9em? I checked the syntax but still not working.

Its' asking me to take the unordered list from the class contact-info and change the font size to 0.9em. Here is my code:

.contact-info ul { font-size: 0.9em; ... }

I believe it is correct but it is saying to "Be sure to set the font size to 0.9em" Why is my code incorrect? Please help

a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {

  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;

Your selector, :point_right:.contact-info ul:point_left: is what is known as a descendant selector. It points to unordered lists that are inside another element with class contact-info.

:white_check_mark: The selector for unordered lists with the class contact-info would be: :point_right:ul.contact-info:point_left:

Samuel's suggestion of selecting using only the class may pass the challenge, but it's not exactly what the challenge was asking for.

Try this:

.contact-info {
  font-size: 0.9em;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

Thank you both for your help! I ended up going with the code ul.contact-info because it did make sense to me. But for clarification, is the "ul.contact-info" would be more specific than the ".contact-info" code right? The ".contact-info" would apply to all locations that has that class attached to it right? Thanks again guys!!
