Tell us what’s happening:
According to the tests, I’m fine. However, I thought that the grid was supposed to keep making new 60px boxes when I stretched. It doesn’t. Can somebody please explain this to me?

Your code so far


<style>
  .item1{background:LightSkyBlue;}
  .item2{background:LightSalmon;}
  .item3{background:PaleTurquoise;}
  .item4{background:LightPink;}
  .item5{background:PaleGreen;}
  
  .container {
    font-size: 40px;
    min-height: 100px;
    width: 100%;
    background: LightGray;
    display: grid;
    /* change the code below this line */
    
    grid-template-columns: repeat(auto-fill, minmax(60px, 1fr));
    
    /* change the code above this line */
    grid-template-rows: 1fr 1fr 1fr;
    grid-gap: 10px;
  }
  
  .container2 {
    font-size: 40px;
    min-height: 100px;
    width: 100%;
    background: Silver;
    display: grid;
    grid-template-columns: repeat(3, minmax(60px, 1fr));
    grid-template-rows: 1fr 1fr 1fr;
    grid-gap: 10px;
  }
</style>
<div class="container">
  <div class="item1">1</div>
  <div class="item2">2</div>
  <div class="item3">3</div>
  <div class="item4">4</div>
  <div class="item5">5</div>
</div>
<div class="container2">
  <div class="item1">1</div>
  <div class="item2">2</div>
  <div class="item3">3</div>
  <div class="item4">4</div>
  <div class="item5">5</div>
</div>

#2

The first grid does that. It tries to make as many columns that are at least 60px wide as it can.


#3

In that case, they are blank, right? Like the columns do not contain any visible content.


#4

Yes. The columns don’t necessarily have to contain anything.
