Your code seems fine.

Ya see, I did that. It’s not accepting my answer.

When you try to submit this, what hint do they give you?

HInt: Your .red CSS rule should have a background property with the value rgb(255, 0, 0) .

Please try a different browser.

Perhaps you’re using a extension that affects your browser’s color settings. Try deactivating all extensions while being on freecodecamp.

Have you tried google chrome ?

Maybe you should look at this :


I am using the iPad Pro. I see why developers don’t like apple. It’s not very practical. Making the switch soon as possible.


Have you tried “background-color: rgb(255, 0 , 0)” instead of just “background” property?

Don’t use Safari , it is incompatible
