@mdtausifiqbal, It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

You can post solutions that invite discussion (like asking how the solution works, or asking about certain parts of the solution). But please don’t just post your solution for the sake of sharing it.
If you post a full passing solution to a challenge and have questions about it, please surround it with [spoiler] and [/spoiler] tags on the line above and below your solution code.

No, you had this.

background: var(red);

Which isn’t how you set a background color without using a variable.

The point is to set a background color first without using a variable. If the browser supports variables it will use the next line to set it again using that variable, if it doesn’t support variables it will just skip the next line and use the color set before it.
