float: left;
width: 400px;
margin: 0 1rem 1rem 0;

I think, in this challenge, they want you to only code the CSS, not altering the HTML at all.

This passes (code in style.css):

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.intro img {
  float: left;
  width: 400px;
  margin: 0 1rem 1rem 0;
}

Thus demonstrating that you understand descendant selector syntax (img being the descendant of the section with the 'intro' class). Keep in mind, 'descendant' just means an element nested within another (considered the 'parent') element.

I hope that helps! Happy coding!
