Challenge: Learn CSS Flexbox by Building a Photo Gallery - Step 9

Link to the challenge:

That is not a body selector. It’s a class selector. If you want to select an HTML element directly, just use the element name, without any prefix.
To remove margin from an element, set its value to 0.

Thanks- I try many ways including removing the class selector and the margin set to 0 but still not working. Any more hint?

If you remove the dot before ‘body’ in your selector and change the margin value to 0, your code should pass. You may need to reset the lesson and type the code again if your code is not accepted.
