Tribute Page - Build a Tribute Page

Tell us what’s happening:
I am doing the tribute page project by attempting to make a replica of the provided example site, i passed all of the tests but i failed at
– Your img element should have a display of block.
– Your #image should have a max-width of 100%.
– Your #image should be centered within its parent.

but i have these rules set in my code, so am i doing something wrong?
Your code so far
The entire HTML for the image and its parent

<figure id="img-div">
            <img id="image"
                alt="a picture of some guys smiling">
            <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>

CSS for the image

#img-div > #image{
    max-width: 100%;
    height: auto;

Thanks for sharing this, i have tried another method to center the image but the issue is not with the image not being centered rather in the test conditions not being fulfilled proven by the Max-width and the display also not being accepted even though i included the proper lines of code

I was hoping it would help you solve the problem.

Are you able to use the help, or the </> preformatted at the top of this textarea to provide your complete code for both html and css? This will allow us to better address the issue and guide you to solve it?

                    for a long time. Long before we called it science, people

Check the spelling of your CSS link. The bug lies there, everything else is correct.
