The :nth-of-type() in css Selector is used to style only those elements which are the nth number of child of its parent element. An n may be a number, a keyword, or a formula. 

Syntax:

:nth-of-type(number) {
      // CSS Property;
} 

Where number is the argument that represents the pattern for matching elements. It can be odd, even or in a functional notation.

  • odd: It represents elements whose position is odd in a series: 1, 3, 5, etc., counting from the end.
  • even: It represents the elements whose position is even in a series: 2, 4, 6, etc., counting from the end.
  • functional notation (): It represents elements whose position of siblings matches the pattern An+B, for every positive integer or zero value of n. The index of the first element, counting from the end, is 1.
