The <p> </p> are HTML paragraph tags you can get familiar with HTML and CSS before going deeper in JavaScript because when you get to the DOM manipulation with JavaScript you will encounter the CSS selectors. So my advice is to get familiar with HTML and CSS before going any further in JavaScript or there will be a lot of code you will most likely struggle to understand because you have never seen it before.
