There’s a mistake in the lesson on using css variables to change several elements at once: https://learn.freecodecamp.org/responsive-web-design/basic-css/use-css-variables-to-change-several-elements-at-once

If you follow the instructions exactly, it asks you to change the value of the same variable --penguin-skin thrice, from gray to white to orange. Doing that will cause your code to be rejected time after time after time.

Finally, I found out what they expect us to do:

  • change penguin-skin to gray
  • change penguin-belly to white
  • change penguin-beak to orange.

The instructions, however, tell us to:

  • change penguin-skin to gray
  • change penguin-skin to white
  • change penguin-skin to orange

I tried finding a “report an error” button or sending an email, but couldn’t find both. So, I thought I’d post here and wait.

The initial given code is:

.penguin {
  /* change code below */
    --penguin-skin: black;
    --penguin-belly: gray;
    --penguin-beak: yellow;
    /* change code above */
....
}

and the request is “In the penguin class, change the black value to gray, the gray value to white, and the yellow value to orange.”

Where is the error?

Sorry. Now i see it. Its not that you can’t pass the challenge its the tests explanations wrong:
"penguin class should declar the --penguin-skin variable and assign it to gray.
penguin class should declar the --penguin-skin variable and assign it to white.
penguin class should declar the --penguin-skin variable and assign it to orange.
"
:slight_smile:
I imagine Its just a copy paste error.

think you should report the issue on the project github page.
