CSS CSS Selectors Advanced Selectors Advanced Selectors Review


The quiz questions too hard I'v gone and try to find the vids but I press Review Video but still and find it.

I was looking at the video but I cant really find the words and I tried some stuff in the video (Tried some ansers) and no it says no.Then I tried again and again and....still a big fat NO!.

So can you guys help me? :)

1.The pseudo-class is called a negation pseudo-class because it doesn't target the elements specified in the argument.

2.How is generated content rendered in the browser? (this part is fine I think I can do it)

3.The top-most element in an HTML document is the element. We're able to target that element with the pseudo-class.

4.The______pseudo-class matches an element when it's the target of a link.

5.We can use the pseudo-element to style the first rendered line of text in a paragraph.

that's all I wanted to ask :)

It would be GREAT to get an answer back :D

Thanks Channon.

Here's a some direction that may help you discover the answers:

  1. Review the video on :not() – The Negation Pseudoclass
  2. It sounds like you've got this part, so I'll leave you to it.
  3. Review the video on :root and :target
  4. Again, review the video on :root and :target
  5. Review the video on Pseudo-elements ::first-line and ::first-letter

Thank you Jeff Jacobson I'll try again :)


  1. :not()
  2. It appears as child content before or after an element’s content.
  3. HTML and :root
  4. :target
  5. ::first-line
  6. no

Thanks but you don't need to waste your time. And I don't know why you dislike him at the top.

u a a star thanks

Thankyou very much Brigitt Arndt
