Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far


<style>
  .red-text {

  }
</style>

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotosApp</h2>
  <p> class ="red-text Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>
  
  <a href="#"><img src="https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>

You can do this by adding style to the element
or a better way is to define a class just like the one in your code that is “red-text”
(That class can also be used)

<p class="red-text">Blaahh blaaah</p>

OR

<p style:"color:red">Blaahh blaaah </p>

I think this is correct and should do it

You can also use a CSS child selector for this kind of stuff:

p:first-child { 
    color: red;
}

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Thank you so much for the solution.
