Why did we not set a flex-basis on the .col ?
Is it because we wanted the flex items to take up all of the space available to them?

Because the flex shorthand is being used. When you just say "flex" you're setting flex-basis , flex-grow, and flex-shrink- a three in one. Here, since you only specify one value, the other two are set for you.
