Challenge: Use an id Attribute to Style an Element

Link to the challenge:

We’ll be happy to help but can you show us what you’ve tried?

I tried :

cat-photo-element {

background-color: green;

}

i replace the element to form but it won’t work: cat-photo-form {
background-color: green;
}

When I do what you’ve described, it passes for me.

Also, sometimes things get a little screwy with the browser - try logging on and off, resetting the browser cache, try a different browser, etc. Also, if you are using dark mode, that can screw with the colors and cause a fail.

If you can post the entire code, we can confirm if the code works or not. If it’s just the system glitching, you can just back out of this challenge and move onto the next.

Ok thank you for your time

I dont really understand your question but try using this syntax in the styles.

body {
background-color: green;
}
