Challenge: Step 60

Link to the challenge:

What you’ve done here is added another element to the CSS selector, and since there is no such element as fallback in HTML you have basically broken the selector. So remove fallback from the selector list.

As for adding the fallback font, the instructions say:

“You can add a fallback value for the font-family by adding another font name separated by a comma.”

In this case, you want to add serif as the fallback. So you would add it after Impact and separate them with a comma.

h1, h2 {
font-family: Impact;, serif: fallback;
}

I still don’t get it sir …Please help me to rearrange the code

OK, you did remove fallback from the selector list, so you’re off to a good start. The word “fallback” is just a term we use to describe the concept of adding an additional font in case a previous font isn’t available, but you don’t actually use the word “fallback” in the CSS, so you can remove fallback from the font-family property. Also, a CSS property ends at the first semi-colon, so you don’t want to add a semi-colon after Impact because then everything after the semi-colon will be ignored and you definitely don’t want serif to be ignored. I would read the instructions again:

"You can add a fallback value for the font-family by adding another font name separated by a comma.”

I hope it is clear what you need to put between Impact and serif.

awww thank you so much it really helped I got it now …h1, h2 {
font-family: Impact, serif;
}
