Learn CSS Variables by Building a City Skyline - Step 21

Tell us what’s happening:
It keeps saying add 5 new div elements even after I’ve completed the required task, which was:

Step 21

The buildings are too spaced out. 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. These will be added as evenly-spaced elements across the container, effectively moving the buildings closer to the center.

My problem now is where exactly am i supposed to add the 5 new div elements?

Thanks, I removed the div elements at the top of .background-building and it went, I guess I misinterpreted the tasks. :sweat_smile:
