Media Query for Responsive Design and Bootstrap 4

I am using Bootstrap 4 (after following Bootstrap 4 basics course) and made monajalal.com website. However now I am learning CSS Layout and came across @media query and I wonder if I am using Bootstrap CDN, would I need @media queries for responsive design or if I do, where should I write them? In a separate style.css file?

In general, while it is faster and more reliable to use Bootstrap CDN using a web link, do you suggest downloading it and linking to it? Any suggestion and reasoning is really appreciated!

Since your site is using all bootstrap styles you don't need to worry too much about them, the framework will take care of it provided you add the proper classes to your markup.

Typically you use a downloaded local copy of an external js or css resource when developing locally and a cdn hosted version when you push your site live.
