Basically CSS selectors are used to find HTML elements and that element should be based on element name, id, class and so on.

Id selector: It uses the Id attribute of an HTML element for which specific element we are selected. If you want to use a single or unique element id selector is used with the hash(#) character followed by the id. Id cannot be start with a number.Example show the HTML element with id para.
  text-align: left;
  color: blue;
Class selector: It selects the element specifies with the class attribute. To select an element of any class it followed by the period(.) attribute with the name of the class. Example: All HTML element with class “magicebox” will be center aligned and color red.
  text-align: center;
  color: red;

Css float Property

This property is used to wrap text around image or vice-versa it also specifies whether or not an element should float in other words we can say to taken element from the normal flow and placed into the container. We can also use overflow and auto property of float when an element is taller than containing one. Example show the float of an image

  float: right;
  margin: 0 0 10px 10px;

Positioning in CSS

It defines the type of positioning methods that we can use for an element. They are of four types:

  • static This property tells that it will not positioned in any special way, it should always be according to normal page. Eg: div is static
  • {`div.static {
      position: static;
      border: 3px solid #73AD21;
  • relative An element with the position relative can be change the setting to top, bottom, right and left properties to its normal position . Eg: div has position relative
  • {`div.relative {
      position: relative;
      left: 30px;
      border: 3px solid #73AD21;
  • fixed Here the position fixed means that it always stay in the same place if the page is scrolled so this position is according to the viewport. the setting to top, bottom, right and left can be used and it does not show gap in the page wherever it would located. Eg: Div has fixed positioning
  • {`div.fixed {
      position: fixed;
      bottom: 0;
      right: 0;
      width: 300px;
      border: 3px solid #73AD21;
  • absolute Absolute is somehow same as relative with the absolute ancestor, it uses the document body and move along with the page
