CSS Battle: #4 - Ups n Downs

In this article, I will solve a Ups n Downs CSS Challenge on CSS Battle. Let's look at the problem first.

Problem

We need to create the following container by using CSS Properties only:
Ups n Downs

Solution

So now look at the Solution and how we are going to achieve this.

HTML

<p class="left"></p>
<p class="middle"></p>
<p class="right"></p>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

CSS

Now let's style the containers.

body {
  margin: 0;
  background: #62306d;
}
.middle,
.left,
.right {
  position: absolute;
  background: #f7ec7d;
  width: 100;
  height: 100;
  border-radius: 10rem 10rem 0 0;
  margin-top: 50;
}
.middle {
  left: 150;
}
.left,
.right {
  transform: rotate(180deg);
  bottom: 34;
}
.left {
  left: 50;
}
.right {
  right: 50;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

In CSS Battle you can use 100 instead of 100px. You don't need to define px in CSS. However, if you are using rem or % then you need to pass them separately. That's why in the above CSS code there are no units mostly. For more info visit here

Alternate Solution

There could be many Alternative Solution I've used this one because of the less characters and simplicity.

HTML

<p l></p>
<p m></p>
<p r></p>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here I am using <p> tag and inside them l stands for left, m stands for middle and r stands for right.

CSS

body{
  margin:0;
  background:#62306D;
}
p[m],p[l],p[r]{
  position:absolute;
  background:#F7EC7D;
  width:100;
  height:100;
  border-radius:10rem 10rem 0 0;
  margin-top:50;
}
p[m]{
  left:150;
}
p[l],p[r]{
  transform:rotate(180deg);
  bottom:34;
}
p[l]{
  left:50;
}
p[r]{
  right:50;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Minify the code or CSS by using any CSS Minifier. It helps you to reduce the characters in the code that will increase score.

  <section>
   <div></div>
   <div></div>
   <div></div>
   <div></div>
   <div></div>
   <div></div>
  </section>
</body>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
body{
  background-color:rebeccaPurple;
  height:100vh;
  display:flex;
  justify-content:center;
  align-items:center;
}
section{
  display:grid;
  grid-template-columns: auto auto auto;
  height:200px;
  width:300px;
}
div:nth-child(even){
  background-color:khaki;
  border-radius:0% 0% 50% 50%;
}
div:nth-child(2){
  transform:rotate(180deg);
