You just need declare font-size:yoursize_px in element you wish to change the font size

if you wanna use selector
try this syntax
element_name{font-size:size_px;}
for eg: you wanna change the size of h2 element via using selector
here is an example for you

h2 { font-size: 16px; }

now this will change the size of your h2 element into 16px

What happens in the CSS part (or usually it is a file), is that classes, tags or other things are specified having a certain make-up

so in this case:
de class red-text (.red-text) has the color red.

Now they ask you to make a similar entry, but then for a p tag.

the entry for a class is .CLASSNAME (so .red-text in this case), but for a tag it suffices to just put the name of the tag: p in this case.

so doing the same thing:
.red-text {
color: red;
}
p {
and then the thing you have to put inside, the font-size with the 16px.
}
so you leave the red-text as it is, because not alle elements with the class of red-text need to be changed in font-size, only the p elements.

So a CSS document is basically a long list of selectors (elements, classes, attributes) and their style inside curly brackets for each element you want to give a special make-up. =) I hope to have helped you. I don’t want to give the whole answer, that is not helping to learn.
