Does the show() and hide() methods count as event listeners as well? Or is it only the click() function that does?

If the click() is an event listener, what makes the show() and hide() methods? What are they, because they don't bring a function with them.

I'm not sure what you mean by "bring a function with them". But show() and hide() are both functions (methods) themselves that affect the visibility of the element(s) they are applied to.

They do not respond to events directly, but they are commonly used in event handlers to make visibility changes when events occur.
