Doubt in step 7 of ferris wheel

So am in Step 7 of the building a ferris wheel project and i am noticing that the curriculum is asking me to give it a property of position as absolute

So my question is why it isn’t inheriting the property of its parent element .wheel which had its position set to absolute ??
I am fairly sure it was happening in building a penguine challenge

Link to the challenge:

Some properties are inheritable, others are not. Positioning is not one of them.
