Link to the challenge:

You are styling your form inline incorrectly.

Best way is to use an ID, or just ‘form’ in CSS and style it there.

In mine I used an ID:
css: #cat-photo-form {background-color: green; }

If you’d prefer to style inline the correct way is to add the following to the form tag:
style=“background-color: green;”

The task ask that class and style should not be used
I used that css: #cat-photo-form {background-color: green; }
can’t you see it?

Oh yes, I see it now. I think it’s a combination of the incorrect inline style + the extra “<” that is causing problems.

When I paste your code directly into my exercise it hightlights these points:

Then if I delete the extra “<” and the inline style it works:

I have removed it the > but yet still not going

this is the priobleem: Your form element should have the background-color of green.
it seems am not getting it right
