CSS Selectors.

CSS selectors, these are used to select a particular or group of tags sharing some common thing like class name, id, (siblings), tag name.

Selectors follow specificity (say priority), for example if there is a tag having class = a and id = b. If you're selecting a element with a and b then CSS property given to b are applied.
