#2

You did not put a question in the Tell us what’s happening section above.


#3

Apply the fallback value of black to the background property of the penguin-top class.
Apply the fallback value of black to the background property of the penguin-bottom class.
// tests completed


#4

The instructions toldl you to add a fallback value of black to the background property of penguin-top and penguin-bottom. You did that, but you also changed the variable name that was already present in the code from --pengiun-skin to --penguin-skin.

Do not change those variable names. The purpose of this challenge, is to have the fallback color work if the variable specified does not exist or the browser does not support variables. In this case, the challenge used a deliberate typo to force the fallback to work.
