Link to the challenge:

In ‘hsl’, ‘sl’ stands for saturation and lightness. In the question, it was said make the saturation to 80% and lightness to 25% in nav element. So it would be like this
nav {
background-color: hsl(180, 80%, 25%);

HSL stands for hue, saturation, and lightness - and represents a cylindrical-coordinate representation of colors.

An HSL color value is specified with the hsl() function, which has the following syntax:

hsl(hue, saturation, lightness)

As per specfiy the Starting with that color as a base, add a background-color to the nav element so it uses the same cyan hue, but has 80% saturation and 25% lightness values to change its tone and shade.

background-color: hsl(180, 80%, 25%);
