Stuck on " Basic CSS: Use Attribute Selectors to Style Elements"

Tell us what’s happening:
Im currently stuck on a lesson " Basic CSS: Use Attribute Selectors to Style Elements" I believe I did everything right and I even followed the help video. But when I run the test it still says that I didnt set the margin… What am I doing wrong?

Your code so far

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
.red-text {
  color: red;
[type='checkbox'] {
margin: 10px 0px 15px 0px;
h2 {
  font-family: Lobster, monospace;

p {
  font-size: 16px;
  font-family: monospace;

.thick-green-border {
  border-color: green;
  border-width: 10px;
  border-style: solid;
  border-radius: 50%;

.smaller-image {
  width: 100px;

.silver-background {
  background-color: silver;

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>
<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="" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>
<div class="silver-background">
  <p>Things cats love:</p>
    <li>cat nip</li>
    <li>laser pointers</li>
  <p>Top 3 things cats hate:</p>
    <li>flea treatment</li>
    <li>other cats</li>

<form action="" id="cat-photo-form" type="checkbox">
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="indoor-outdoor" checked> Indoor</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="indoor-outdoor"> Outdoor</label><br>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality" checked> Loving</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Lazy</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Energetic</label><br>
  <input type="checkbox" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
  <button type="submit">Submit</button>

Challenge: Use Attribute Selectors to Style Elements

Link to the challenge:

You shouldn’t have set the type of each element in html to "checkbox". Everything you have to do is to set the margin using css. I think the easiest thing would be to reset the exercise :wink:


Hi like @sitek94 mentioned, the only thing you need to add is the CSS and leave everything else as is. The tests are failing because you have added “checkbox” everywhere.
