You already gave a path to the script tag, "example.js" is a relative path that will check for the file in the same directory/folder the HTML document is located in. If you mean the absolute path (full path e.g. "C:/users/user/documents/......") then no it is not necessary and frowned apon actually.

Yes. Say if you had a folder called "Project" and it was setup like this: --------- [img] -> earth.jpg, moon.jpg, sun.jpg [scripts] -> app.js, example.js, script.js [styles] -> bootstrap.min.css, style.css index.html --------- (Where "[...]" indicates a folder and "->" indicates the files in that folder) In "index.html" to link to "example.js" you would want to use: <script src="./scripts/example.js"></script> (The "./" can be used to denote the current folder)
