Challenge: Learn CSS Variables by Building a City Skyline - Step 21

Link to the challenge:

I think you are miscounting.
here’s the instructions again

Squeeze them together by adding two empty div elements to the top of the .background-buildings element, two more at the bottom of it, and one more in between .bb3 and .bb4 .

I will now split up the instructions to help you count the divs you need to add

1- add two empty div elements to the top of the .background-buildings
2- add two empty div elements to the bottom of the .background-buildings
3- add one empty div element between .bb3 and .bb4

so that makes 2+2+1 = 5

when I try that it tells me

Hint

You should add two new div elements before the .bb1 element. and when I add them it tells me i should only have 5 divs

Tell us what’s happening:
I add as many divs as it asks me but every time im meither missing divs or i have too many
