The element element selector in CSS is used to select elements inside the elements i.e it combines two selectors such that elements matched by the second selector are selected if they have an ancestor element matching the first selector.

Syntax:

element element {
      /* CSS Property */
}

Example 1:

html

<!-- HTML code to illustrates space selector -->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <title>
        element element Selector
    </title>
 
    <style>
        div p {
            background-color: green;
            color: white;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body style="text-align: center;">
 
    <h1 style="color: green;">
        GeeksforGeeks
    </h1>
 
    <div>
        <h2>element element Selector</h2>
 
        <!-- CSS property is used here -->
        <p>A computer science portal for geeks.</p>
    </div>
 
    <p>This paragraph will not be selected.</p>
</body>
 
</html>
