Selector for Step 45?

Tell us what’s happening:
Hello fcc support,

I am trying to complete step 45 on the Learning Accessibility by Building a Quiz. I have the following code:

Your code so far

li  >  a {
    aspect-ratio:  7/1;
}

Would you please assist me in understanding what is incorrect about the selector that I am entering?

HI @bkabat35 !

Read the error message very carefully because it will tell you the correct css selector to use.

The goal of this lesson is to improve the contrast for the nav links.

I would suggest using the same color as the h1.

Once you fix that color then the test will pass.

Hope that helps!

You must contrast with the background color in a ratio of at least 7:1.
To do that you must first know the background color of the element, in this case the bgc of the header; since the color #9e9eff is the closest to the ratio (7.03:1) so focus in change the colour of element anchor…
and done!!

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.
