Which of the following pseudo-classes can we use to target elements with no child content?

I was not able to figure this one out.

The answers were not() also :empty, i think onlychild and something else.

I don't understand the question.

I still passed the quiz, but I had this one wrong.

Thank you!

The question is asking for a way to identify elements that have no child elements. Another way to describe an element has no child elements inside it would be to call it "empty".

So the :empty pseudo-class would target elements that have no contents. None of the other choices are selectors that work based on a lack of contents.
