Styling with backgroung images and background colors

Okay, so I’m currently in the process of styling my “Survey Form” html document as part of the certification project in HTML-CSS.

The problem here is, I can’t seem to figure out how to style the “body element” and “container class” separately with a background image and background color respectively.
Some guidance on the way forward will be much appreciated…

  **Your code so far**
/* file: index.html */
<!DOCTYPE html>
  <title>Survey Form</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
  <div class="container">
    <header class="header">
      <h1 id="title">Survey Form</h1>
      <p id="description">Thank you for making time to complete this form.</p>

    <form id="survey-form">
