Why do we need event.target?

Why do we even need this event.target?

It indicates anomaly indicator because we put variable name e instead of event

thus it will behave individually, not mutually each other.

then how do we even need that event.target code?

it would work just fine without using it i guess.???

1 Answer

it can be e, event or any name you want it doesn't matter what you named it, Event is an object and event.target contains all the properties of the selected element.
