Challenge: Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 79

Link to the challenge:

you should try to follow the instructions. Here they are for ref

use a type selector for the anchor element (a ) and use the value black for the color property.

Let me know if you have a question about the instructions.

I’m just confused in general what to do. I don’t know where to start.

I’m not sure how to answer you because your question is not very specific.

For example: The instructions say that you should add an anchor selector.
Do you know how to do that?

it says to add another anchor element but the only type of anchor element I have seen is in the index.html when sourcing an image or a website.

As I said that I realised the question seems to add extra words which can be confusing. All you I needed to was just treat it like another other class.

this is an example of an h1 selector

the anchor selector is almost identical but uses a instead of h1
