Descendant selector

Descendant selector

A descendant selector is a CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) selector that targets elements nested inside a parent element. Descendant selectors let you apply styles to a specific element based on its relationship with its parent element. Web developers use descendant selectors to modify certain items within a hierarchy of nested elements without affecting other elements with the same tags.
