Your code so far

Hey @Gudnex,
This is not the way you add class in an element.
The syntax for adding class is :

<div class="...your class name..." >

Does that help?


#3

It is still showing me :your div element should have silver-background


#4

Hey Gudnex,
You did properly create the class. But you didn’t assign the class you created to the actual div inside the opening div tag.
Hope this helps!
Gabe

Could you post your latest code?

You should add the class to <div> element like this :
<div class = "silver-background">
