Your code is correct in that it works and that is a best practice to separate style from HTML markup.

BUT

The way the test was set up for this challenge they are looking for a style applied inline terminated with a ; similar to the example.

how to end style declaration with a;

There are types of writing CSS styles, internal, external and inline, what you have done is internal and its correct but the test requires you to write inline style,

Ex: <tag style="any-property;"></tag>

Write your h2 as in the example with the required style asked in the test and also end with ; as mentioned
