  <h2>The man who saved a billion lives</h2>
  <div id="img-div">
    <img id="image"><figcaption id="img-caption">
      Dr. Norman Borlaug, third from the left, trains biologists in Mexico on how to increase wheat yields - part of his life-long war on hunger.</figcaption>
    <div id="tribute-info"><p>Here's a time line of Dr. Borlaug's life:</p>
      <li>1914 - Born in Cresco, Iowa</li>
      <li>1933 - Leaves his family's farm to attend the University of Minnesota, thanks to a Depression era program known as the "National Youth Administration"</li>
      <li>1935 - Has to stop school and save up more money. Works in the Civilian Conservation Corps, helping starving Americans. "I saw how food changed them", he said. "All of this left scars on me."</li>
      <li>1937 - Finishes university and takes a job in the US Forestry Service</li>
      <li>1938 - Marries wife of 69 years Margret Gibson. Gets laid off due to budget cuts. Inspired by Elvin Charles Stakman, he returns to school study under Stakman, who teaches him about breeding pest-resistent plants.</li>
      <li>1941 - Tries to enroll in the military after the Pearl Harbor attack, but is rejected. Instead, the military asked his lab to work on waterproof glue, DDT to control malaria, disinfectants, and other applied science.</li>
      <li>1942 - Receives a Ph.D. in Genetics and Plant Pathology</li>
      <li>1944 - Rejects a 100% salary increase from Dupont, leaves behind his pregnant wife, and flies to Mexico to head a new plant pathology program. Over the next 16 years, his team breeds 6,000 different strains of disease resistent wheat - including different varieties for each major climate on Earth.</li>
      <li>1945 - Discovers a way to grown wheat twice each season, doubling wheat yields</li>
      <li>1953 - crosses a short, sturdy dwarf breed of wheat with a high-yeidling American breed, creating a strain that responds well to fertilizer. It goes on to provide 95% of Mexico's wheat.</li>
      <li>1962 - Visits Delhi and brings his high-yielding strains of wheat to the Indian subcontinent in time to help mitigate mass starvation due to a rapidly expanding population</li>
      <li>1970 - receives the Nobel Peace Prize</li>
      <li>1983 - helps seven African countries dramatically increase their maize and sorghum yields</li>
      <li>1984 - becomes a distinguished professor at Texas A&M University</li>
      <li>2005 - states "we will have to double the world food supply by 2050." Argues that genetically modified crops are the only way we can meet the demand, as we run out of arable land. Says that GM crops are not inherently dangerous because "we've been genetically modifying plants and animals for a long time. Long before we called it science, people were selecting the best breeds."</li>
      <li>2009 - dies at the age of 95.</li>
      <p id="end-statement">"Borlaug's life and achievement are testimony to the far-reaching contribution that one man's towering intellect, persistence and scientific vision can make to human peace and progress."

-- Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh</p>

Challenge: Tribute Page - Build a Tribute Page

Link to the challenge:

You don’t have any image in your html code:

For an ‘img’ element you must have an ‘src’ attribute:

<img src="URL" id="image">

The ‘src’ attribute should have a link to an image.

Thank you, however still not fixed my original css problem. :frowning:

To center the img you must use auto for margin-left and margin-right

Your selector is not targeting the element correctly, img-div is an id, not a class.

If you want to use flexbox for the centering you can set the flex-direction to column

#someId {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  align-items: center;

My question is for someone to explain what the parent element of my img is.
(whos my daddy?) was a joke relating to the question…
My code according to the exam rules is perfectly fine, im just confused as to the parent child analogy.

Your image is a child of the #img-div element

Thank you! I thought so, could you possibly explain where i am going wrong with the selector idea then? up until now any id has been able to be used as a selector so im mighty confused. I did try using div as the selector also.

You are using .img-div which is a class selector not an id selector.
You will need to switch to #img-div

Thank you, that wasnt very clear before.
I have however tried #img-div and it’s not working :frowning:
Thought i was getting it really well as ive flown through the rest, but this centering the parent image is not matching up to my logic :confused:
I do however appreciate all your explaining!

Did you try Lasse’s suggestion?
