FCC Challenge 36: Give a Background Color to a Div Element

In Free Code Camp Challenge 36 we learn to set a background color to a div element.

You can set an element’s background color with the background-color property.

For example, if you wanted an element’s background color to be green, you’d put this within your style element:

.green-background {
  background-color: green;
}

Create a class called silver-background with the background-color of silver. Assign this class to your div element.

The original code is below:

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<style>
  .red-text {
    color: red;
  }

  h2 {
    font-family: Lobster, Monospace;
  }

  p {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: Monospace;
  }

  .thick-green-border {
    border-color: green;
    border-width: 10px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-radius: 50%;
  }

  .smaller-image {
    width: 100px;
  }
</style>

</div>

<form action="/submit-cat-photo">

  <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor"> Outdoor</label>

  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Energetic</label>
  <input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>

The updated code with background color for the div element is below:

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<style>
  .red-text {
    color: red;
  }

  h2 {
    font-family: Lobster, Monospace;
  }

  p {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: Monospace;
  }

  .thick-green-border {
    border-color: green;
    border-width: 10px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-radius: 50%;
  }

  .smaller-image {
