Challenge: Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 36

Link to the challenge:

`Sorry, your code does not pass. Hang in there.

You should apply the class to your element.itemarticle`

Please Tell us what’s happening in your own words.

Learning to describe problems is hard, but it is an important part of learning how to code.

Also, the more you say, the more we can help!

I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. I replaced flavor in each with item still wrong

3 issues here:

  1. Look at the color of the letters. Your first p here is a funny color, indicating a syntax error. Every tag needs a < and a >, but you deleted the > on the line above.

  2. You didn’t add a class attribute to the article element.

  3. You added a class attribute to the p element.

Also, you added a bunch of new elements here, but the instructions didn’t ask for that. I’d delete all those extra elements.

The item class was to be attributed to the first article element under the Coffee. If you do it as you have your other attributions, you should succeed. :slight_smile:

Please provide me an example as the wording is confusing

We cannot write the answer for you. That’s against the rules.

Try fixing the issues I pointed out one at a time.


Delete all the extra elements (or reset the code for the Step)


Put the > back (or reset the code for the Step and it will happen automatically)


Add a class attribute only to the article element here and nowhere else:

Tank You…I appreciate your insight
