Instructions: " Create a class called silver-background with the background-color of silver . Assign this class to your div element."
My code:

  }

  h2 {

  }
</style>

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>
<main>
  <p class="red-text">Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>

  <a href="#"><img class="smaller-image thick-green-border" src="https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>

It is giving me an error that " Your

div

element should have a silver background."
Help is appreciated, thanks

Your code passes for me. Before you start the lessons there is this;
