WARNING

The challenge seed code and/or your solution exceeded the maximum length we can port over from the challenge.

You will need to take an additional step here so the code you wrote presents in an easy to read format.

Please copy/paste all the editor code showing in the challenge from where you just linked.

Replace these two sentences with your copied code.
Please leave the ``` line above and the ``` line below,
because they allow your code to properly format in the post.

Please paste both your HTML and CSS in here using the following method so that we can see your code properly and test it.

To display your code in here you need to wrap it in triple back ticks. On a line by itself type three back ticks. Then on the first line below the three back ticks paste in your code. Then below your code on a new line type three more back ticks. The back tick on my keyboard is in the upper left just above the Tab key and below the Esc key. You may also be able to use Ctrl+e to automatically give you the triple back ticks while you are typing in the this editor and the cursor is on a line by itself. Alternatively, with the cursor on a line by itself, you can use the </> button above the editor to add the triple back ticks.

Argues that genetically modified crops are the only way we can meet the demand, as we run out of arable land.

Tribute Page - Build a Tribute Page

The two tests which are failing:

  • Your #image should have a max-width of 100%.

  • Your #image should be centered within its parent.

You have an img element but you haven’t actually added an image. This is not causing the tests to fail however.

The issue is with your CSS:

img {
  display: block;
}

.image {
  max-width:100%;
  height: auto;
}

main, .image{
  justify-content: center;
}

You don’t have an image class in your HTML document, so the max-width property is not being applied to anything. The height property is set to auto by default, so that one is redundant.

Neither can you use the justify-content to centre elements unless it is within a flexbox container.

To centre an image, you’d be better adding the relevant CSS rules within your first (img) selector.

Here’s a simple guide on centering images:

Hello @azeemabdul79 !

You have listed your image as a class image, but it is actually a id image.

Dot . is class syntax and # is id syntax.

As well, try setting your img width to 100% as per the instructions.

Happy coding!

Thanks mate !! (it worked)
