Hello ,

Below is my code :

May I know why hovering doesn't work on line no 39 at present and only works if I change it to .dropdown:hover .dropdown-content { ?
Since there are two classes overlapped on each other, can i not access the child class without going through the parent class ?

In future posts, please be sure that your code is properly indented.

Change it from what? You've only given us half of the story.

a.dropbtn:hover .dropdown-content reads as "a.dropbtn:hover is an ancestor to .dropdown-content" - now take a look at your HTML.
Hint: Adjacent sibling selectors | MDN.

That being said probably best stick to the fix that you have already found.

Hi Bear,

I meant 'change it from a.dropbtn:hover .dropdown-content{ (line #39) to .dropdown:hover .dropdown-content {

.dropdown-context isn't a child of the <a> element, is it?

Right Bear! It's a sibling , not a child.

Thank you so much Bear and Peer !
