Question

In the example given in this exercise, why would we want to use the .brand selector rather than the p selector to target our paragraph?

Answer

The code snippet used in this exercise is purely for demonstrative purpose. However, you can imagine a project where we had multiple <p> elements. Say we only wanted to target a fraction of those elements for styling. We could apply a class attribute specifically to the <p> tags containing the text we wanted to style. In this case, we target the <p> elements we want to style while ignoring those <p> elements we do not want to style.

More generally, this example illustrates how we can use classes to more narrowly target groups of elements.

Do variables on computers work like this?, we could have a class and appy changes not only to the class but also to other elements that are out of that class, such as parts and sections of a program or an app?
I’m sorry if this is a too confused question

What do you mean by computer variables?
