Not allowing me to proceed to the next question even though the answer is correct?

Tell us what’s happening:

I have triple checked and even copy and pasted the code in the valid solutions but I can’t figure out why it still shows up as incorrect when I try to proceed.

It keeps stating " The anchor tag color should remain black, only add CSS rules for the :hover state.", but the black color hasn’t been changed even after I’ve reset the challenge multiple times. Any suggestions?

Your code so far

a {
  color: #000;

a:hover {
  color: blue;

Challenge: Adjust the Hover State of an Anchor Tag

That code passes. Do you have any browser extensions installed that interfere with how websites render? (Such as a dark mode, ad blocker, or style overwriter)

Definitely was due to having dark mode on. Everything worked when that was inactive. Thank you.

If you like dark modes, freeCodeCamp has a native one that you can turn on in Settings.
