Learn CSS Variables by Building a City Skyline - Step 77

My code is not passing. Help! The hint says You should give .fb1c a background with a repeating-linear-gradient"

The original question was → Step 77

Don’t worry about the space at the bottom, everything will get moved down later when you add some height to the element at the top of the building.

Add a repeating-linear-gradient to .fb1c with a 90deg angle, your --building-color4 from 0% to 10% and transparent from 10% to 15%.
