jQuery code to show the working of andSelf( ) method:





    <script type="text/javascript" 
        $(document).ready(function() {
        div {
            margin: 5px;
            padding: 5px;
        .border {
            border: 2px solid green;
        .background {
            background: green;
        <p>This is first paragraph.</p>
        <p>This is second paragraph.</p>


Here border would be added to previous selection which is a division and then second selection which is paragraphs.
