Accordion is a vertically collapsing element to show and hide information (data) through class changes. The accordion component allows the user to show and hide pieces of specific data on a page. An accordion is a simple container that may be used standalone or connected to a larger surface, such as a card. When readers only want a particular key piece of content: If users only need some data on a page, then an accordion can do them more easily and efficiently find the content they're searching for. 


If you need to display some important content in multiple lists within a particular area, then you should make them in an accordion list. So that people can easily read the given information by clicking on each heading.
