Question

To reset the default margin and padding properties for the body element in step 1 of this exercise, should I use the body selector or the * selector?

Answer

Both selectors will reset the margin and padding properties of the <body> element thereby allowing you to pass this exercise. However, using the universal selector (*) will select all HTML elements. As such, it makes for a common reset and it is what I would recommend using here.
