Hi,

as you can see there are different css selector to style your content:

Element selector: you simply type the element that you want to style and the property inside the curly braces.

style.css
/* element selector */
a {
  /* your style goes here */
}

ID selector: always start with # sign

style.css
/* ID selector */
#your-id {
    /* your style goes here */  
}

Class selector: start with a .

style.css
/* class selector */
.your-class {
    /* your style goes here */  
}

So if need to style a paragraph element, which in html is the p tag, what selector would you use?

The first example in this docs can help you! :wink:
