Hello..

Hopefully this answer will help.

ID Selector: ---> # Type Number Sign or hashtag ie) CSS StyleSheet: (ID Example) #top { }

Break down what each part of the CSS code and what it means to the whole picture( think anatomy)/how each item connects and you will get it.

Class Selector: ----> .
.classname { }

Don't let people make you feel bad for not getting an answer. Sometimes after watching thirty videos.. I'll get a brain freeze on even simple questions.

the answer is "." (dot)

i know that but i don't know the awnser

We create an ID selector with a # symbol. We create a class selector with a . character.

I just give you an answer.

I tried using the special character # and . but the answer was wrong. It was only after spelled it out "hashtag" and "dot" did I get the correct answer.

we create ID selector with hashtag and class selector with dot.

ok

Except the "answer" he gave still won't return a "correct answer". I put that in before even looking here, and got it wrong.

Hi Richard

I'll give you a hint. The blank space that you'll complete are symbols. One is used to select id and other to select class. I think you'll get this one for sure.

Do you know how to style in CSS? You have to use selectors, right?

Element Selectors are like these:

p {

}

h1 {

}

How about ID and Class Selectors?
