AddEventListener question

Guil created a variable with the p tag and added also the class of description. So far so good but where it lost me was when creating the add event listener step.

Why did Guil not add the class description to make it more specific. Also how did the event listener know which p tag to select if theres a lot of P tags in the HTML side.

Heres the link to the video just in case.

He did add the class "description" at around 2:42. And he used that class to identify which paragraph tag to modify.

Thanks for the fast response. I realized the whole thing and while trying to answer you back I saw and completely over saw that he did create a variable for p and the class description and it was named P. Thanks.
