Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 14

can’t understand what’s wrong…

Your code so far

<!-- file: index.html -->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>Colored Markers</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
    <h1>CSS Color Markers</h1>
    <div class="container"><div class="marker"><div class="marker"></div></div>
      <div class="marker">
/* file: styles.css */
h1 {
  text-align: center;

.marker {
  width: 200px;
  height: 25px;
  background-color: red;
  margin: auto;

Challenge: Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 14

Please don’t just write code all on the same line. It makes your code hard to read and debug.

Here’s your code in neater formatting so you can hopefully see the problem:

    <div class="container">
      <div class="marker">
        <div class="marker">
      <div class="marker">

The problem now is clear? (they wanted a total of 3 div elements directly beneath the .container div. But instead you now have 2 div elements. One of which is the parent of another 3rd div.

All the divs should be opened and closed immediately so that they do not become nested within each other.
