are you getting any hints when you check?


Yes it is – Hint: You should use an img selector
I even try the class method and that didn’t work as well

great, so notice that the test is telling you that it doesn’t think that .img { is a valid selector for img

Now, try to believe that it is 100% correct.
Why do you think it doesn’t believe your .img is the same as img?


well the .img isn’t declare as class in the following coffee icon code even though that was the first thing I did even then it didn’t execute

.img is class selector whereas img is simple code with no target. Hope I am right with this

yes, .img is used only to select a class of type img

So if the exercise wants you to select img then don’t use the class selector .img

the browser knows that everything inside the css is to be applied to everything in the html file because of this line:

<link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

If the code had more than one img, and you wanted different styling for each one, then you would use a different selector like the id selector (ids have to be unique for each element), or you could also tell the browser which img you wanted by its location (such as telling it to pick the first img child of a div for eg or the last img child of a body etc).
