Challenge: Add a box-shadow to a Card-like Element

Link to the challenge:

Couple of things.

This is the #thumbnail selector

You are supposed to write your answer in there.

This is wrong

I would just delete that because it has syntax errors.

I would also delete this

  /* offset-x | offset-y | blur-radius | spread-radius | color */

You are supposed to add this code that FCC gave you

box-shadow: 0 10px 20px rgba(0,0,0,0.19), 0 6px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.23);

and place it inside the selector

#thumbnail {
