What is the difference between using ‘space-between’ in justify-content, and just setting up grid-gaps when setting the grid template?

As far as I can understand, the “space-between” value will distribute the space between the gaps evenly to fit 100% of the grid container. Assigning “grid-gap” properties could result in an overflow (depending on how large the values are) so content might go out from the container area.
Hope that helps.

Does using “stretch” give the same result as “start” always or that is only obtainable in this exercise. Thanks.

What is the difference between justify-items and justify-contents?

First of all, it’s actually justify-content not justify-contents. Second, justify-items controls the horizontal position of the grid items themselves while justify-content controls the horizontal position of the grid itself

Am I correct when I state that “justify-item” has no effect/is useless, if I use “justify-content” on top of it?
