Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 86

Hello, I am trying to add the box shadow to the CSS rule code. I have searched the forum and online and cannot figure out why the below code will not pass. I have tried multiple browsers and even another computer. I really hope this isn’t a silly typo. I have tried with and without (). I have tried it in the beginning of the rule for red and at the end. I have tried attaching it to the background-color property as well.

  **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">

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
  <h1>CSS Color Markers</h1>
  <div class="container">
    <div class="marker red">
      <div class="cap"></div>
      <div class="sleeve"></div>
    <div class="marker green">
      <div class="cap"></div>
      <div class="sleeve"></div>
    <div class="marker blue">
      <div class="cap"></div>
      <div class="sleeve"></div>
/* file: styles.css */
h1 {
text-align: center;

.container {
background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
padding: 10px 0;

.marker {
width: 200px;
height: 25px;
margin: 10px auto;

.cap {
width: 60px;
height: 25px;

.sleeve {
width: 110px;
height: 25px;
background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5);
border-left: 10px double rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);

.cap, .sleeve {
display: inline-block;

.red {
background: linear-gradient(rgb(122, 74, 14), rgb(245, 62, 113), rgb(162, 27, 27)); box-shadow: 5px, 5px, red;

.green {
background: linear-gradient(#55680D, #71F53E, #116C31);

.blue {
background: linear-gradient(hsl(186, 76%, 16%), hsl(223, 90%, 60%), hsl(240, 56%, 42%));
