the original code presented was this:

   <style>
      h1 {
        text-align: center;
      }
      h2 {
        text-align: center;
      }
      p {
        text-align: center;
      }
    </style>

And the instructions were:
Delete the three existing type selectors and replace them with one selector list that centers the text for the h1 , h2 , and p elements.

What it wants is for you to combine the 3 selectors into one.
The exercise shows you the expected syntax when you combine them.
Try again to see if you can do that.

hello, try this :

I can’t get it, CSS dealing with me :slightly_frowning_face:

This is what I am doing {text-align:h1, h2, p}. Where am I getting it wrong?

you seem to be confused about what a selector is.

Here’s the sample code for ref:

selector1, selector2 {
  property: value;
}

and here’s the original code again:

<style>
      h1 {
        text-align: center;
      }
      h2 {
        text-align: center;
      }
      p {
        text-align: center;
      }
    </style>

Looking at these 2 together, do you see a pattern?
Which of these (in the 2nd block) matches the words “selector1, selector2” do you think?

hi, h2 matches selector1, selector2. Is that right?

yes so true!
And you can add the p to that list using a comma so
h1, h2, p are all in a list now

So what about the word “property” what goes there?

Oh okay, the word property should read text-align: right?

yes, there you go!
What does that leave? If you can try the exercise again now?

okay, can I have selector as the anchor tag before the {text-align}?

not quite sure I understand. Show me what you mean?

selector{
text-align: center;h1, h2, p}. This is it?

nope. Remember, what is a selector?
A selector is what tells the browser which elements you want to modify.

So you must replace the word selector with the list of the name of the elements you want to modify.

I got it my code works now, Thanks!

Hello guys,

mod edit: solution removed

they only make use of the word selector for example purpose.
pls guys try to avoid copy and paste from the questions sometimes .
