You don't read properly lol

Re-read what the question asks you to do. Re-read your classes.

HINT: It didn't tell you to use a dash in the class.

xD Were all been there xD just read what you select.

Read if the name matches on what you select. That's something I'v learned from my experience.

The more you do it the faster you will become to spot these things. Basically problem solving. I'm confident that I can solve pretty much any problem fairly quickly with CSS etc... but that's because of my previous experience when i was trying to figure out the stuff, step by step :D

You're not blind, you just need to read it again, and again and again xD

Glad it helped :)
