Tell us what’s happening:
The challenge description doesn’t say that the styles constant needs to be outside the Colorful class declaration. The solution I have below works, but does not pass the tests.

Your code so far

// Change code above this line
class Colorful extends React.Component {
render() {
  // Change code below this line
  const styles = {
    color: "purple", 
    fontSize: 40, 
    border: "2px solid purple"
  return (
    <div style={styles}>Style Me!</div>
  // Change code above this line

Challenge: Add Inline Styles in React

Link to the challenge:

it’s not accessible by the tests if you create it in local scope, to be able to be tested, the object needs to be in the global scope

Maybe it could be made a bit clearer in the question that the object needs to be in the global scope, and also put a // Change code below this line at the beginning of the code followed by an empty line since I missed the comment on the first line as well.

would you open a github issue on this?
