Challenge: Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 18

Link to the challenge:

The instruction: " Add another style to the file that changes the background-color property to brown for the body element."

element {
  property: value;

‘body’ is the element,
‘background-color’ is the property,
‘brown’ is the value.

why is it when i enter the the text it is telling me that i should set the background-colour property to brown

If I understood you well, you want to know why the hint sometimes leads you in the wrong direction. The short answer would be: It would be too complicated to predict every possible scenario about what can go wrong in someone’s approach to trying to resolve the challenge.

Otherwise, you should follow the rule given in the previous CSS selector:

h1, h2, p {
  text-align: center;
  • Instead of this multiple elements selector, now you have the ‘body’
  • Instead of the ‘text-align’ property, you have the ‘background-color’ property
  • instead of the value of “center”, now you have the value of ‘brown’.

i did exctaly what i was asked for and followed the instructions.What you are not understanding is that i did exctaly that and i still did not pass

its telling me to set the background-set color to brwon dont know what to do now.Thats to my understanding

i deleted the first body selector and added the new the background-colour and body and others

Post the entire html and css code here. Use the </> button to format code properly.
