jQuery is an open-source JavaScript library that simplifies the interactions between an HTML/CSS document, or more precisely the Document Object Model (DOM), and JavaScript. Elaborating the terms, it simplifies HTML document traversing and manipulation, browser event handling, DOM animations, Ajax interactions, and cross-browser JavaScript development.

The jQuery :even selector used to select an even number index from the elements. The number of index starts from 0. The working is same as :odd selectors but for even numbers.

Syntax 

$(":even")
