Why we can only use or select the class or id which are inside <div> html tag?

I cannot select the class outside the <div> tag to style. Any answer would be appreciated.

Khun Tee Bwar for css, you're right, the selector can only select his own, sibling or child elements, not parent element.

You could use parentElement. parentElement is the parent element of the current node. It return a DOM Element object or return null if no parent element exists. Eg if (divNode.parentElement) { divNode.parentElement.style.color = "red"; // set text color of parent node }
