The root folder, is the folder where your project itself lies, sub-folders are directories within that root folder.

So let's say I create a project folder called "My Project"

> My Project/

"My Project" will end up being the root folder, of our project because it is the main folder that hosts all of the other web files.

> My Project/
    --- > scripts/
         --- > index.js
    --- > css/
         --- > main.css
    ---- > index.html

The folders scripts/, and css/ will be sub-folders (or sub-directories) that contain files relating to the project, but not the entire project itself.

I hope that clarifies things, if not feel free to ask.
