The :first-of-type Selector is used to targeting the first child of every element of it’s parent. if we want to style the first child of an element without giving a class, we can use it. 

Syntax:

:first-of-type {
  //property
}

Example: 

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <style>
        p:first-of-type {
            background: limegreen;
            font-size: 4.0em;
            font-style: italic;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
    <p>First child</p>
    <p>Second child.</p>
    <p>Third child.</p>
    <p>Fourth child.</p>
</body>
</html>
