Challenge: Learn CSS Variables by Building a City Skyline - Step 112

Link to the challenge:

Hint: the first line of the gradient should mention the colour and 0% in it.
2nd hint: the second line should mention 20% somewhere

If you search the forum you can find others who asked about this and got help so you can learn from their questions as well.

It’s asking : #ffcf33 from 0% to 20%. Where is 0% and 20%?

It’s always good to use online resources like MDN when coding:

Thank you for your cmt. I passed this step.
