There are lots of javascript libraries like – anime.js, screenfull.js, moment.js, etc. JQuery is also a part of javascript libraries. It is used to simplify the code. It is a lightweight and feature-rich library. 

In this article, we will learn how to find all children with a specified class of each division. 

.children(selector) – In jquery you can achieve this task by using the method named .children(). It takes the selector as a parameter and changes the children element with the specified name. 

Example 1:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    </script>
 
    <style>
        body {
            font-size: 20px;
            font-style: italic;
            background-color: green;
            text-align: center;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <div>
        <h1 class="child">
            GeeksForGeeks
        </h1>
 
        <span>
            This is a span in div element.
            (children but not specified)
        </span>
 
        <p class="child">
            This is a paragraph with specified
            class in a div element.
        </p>
 
 
        <div class="child">
            This is inner div with specified
            class in a div element.
        </div>
 
         
<p>
            This is another paragraph in div
            element.(children but not specified)
        </p>
 
    </div>
 
    <script>
        $("div").children(".child").css({
            "background-color": "lightgreen",
            "border-style": "inset"
        });
    </script>
</body>
 
</html>

Output:

Explanation: The div element has 5 children ( 1 heading, 1 span, 1 inner div, and 3 paragraphs). In the code, we have specified three-element with class=”child” i.e. two paragraphs and one div. You can notice that only specified elements get affected and change their style property.

Example 2:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <script src=
    </script>
     
    <style>
        body {
            font-size: 20px;
            font-style: italic;
            background-color: green;
            text-align: center;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <div>
        <h1>GeeksForGeeks</h1>
 
         
<p>
            class with prime will only
            get different style property
        </p>
 
 
         
<p>'1' is not a prime number.</p>
 
 
        <p class="prime">'2' is a prime number.</p>
 
 
        <div class="prime">'3' is a prime number.</div>
 
         
<p>'4' is not a prime number.</p>
 
 
        <p class="prime">'5' is a prime number</p>
 
    </div>
     
    <script>
        $("div").children(".prime").css({
            "background-color": "lightgreen",
            "border-style": "inset"
        });
    </script>
</body>
 
</html>
