Challenge: Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 63

Link to the challenge:

css selectors that you have learned about so far include element and class selectors.
In this case they want you to use an anchor element selector
So you will need to use the a selector to target this element.

Please try that.

Mod edit: solution redacted

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

Hi,
I’m stucked in the same step, I’ve tried in the following way :
.a: terms and contidions{ color:#dfdfe2;}
but it doesn’t work.
it says you should use an a element selector isn’t .a an element selector?

no .a is a class selector. Remove the dot to have an element selector

Is this because that is the only <a> in the syntax?

Not 100% sure what is the context of your question but I am guessing you are asking why we need to add an a selector? In this case a is the name of the element and I guess this exercise wanted the a element (which happens to be the only one there) to have a certain styling.

my question was, do we only need to use the a selector because only one element used that particular anchor, like if there was two or three different anchors with would we have to name it to single it out?

yes in this exercise we can use a simple a selector because there is only one.
(you can also use it you are applying a common styling to all anchor elements)
If you had more than one and wanted specific styling for each one you would have to use other techniques to select the specific elements as needed.
(there are multiple techniques, one of them is to use an id attribute that is unique to each element)
