Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 78

Tell us what’s happening:
I managed to set the display to inline-block but I think to use class selector to target both cap and sleeve is wrong. Please can anyone assist.

Your code so far

Link to the challenge:

There is no such thing as a sleeve element. But there is a sleeve class…

(Hint hint)

I ran a code of .cap, sleeve {display: inline-block;} but the hint instruct me to use a class selector to target both cap and sleeve classes. That’s where I am losing it

Yes so think about…

My hint to you is you are trying to select a class of cap and an element of sleeve.

What do you think makes me say this - this specific way? (An element of sleeve but they want a class of sleeve)

Makes sense. I get your point now… That means the code should be .cap, .sleeve {display: inline-block;} instead of .cap, sleeve {display: inline-block;}

It worked. Thank you very much!
