Please talk to us about what the error message is and what you have tried to fix the error message.


Then, create a new CSS rule that targets the class one and set its background-color property to red.

It looks like you need to target the one class, not the marker class. I would remove the word marker

thanks.but need explanation
why I have to skip the word marker here

The instructions don’t mention the word marker anywhere. Generally, you don’t want to add anything extra the instructions don’t talk about.
