The box-sizing property is specified with .box. We can apply the padding and border to an element (element's total width and height). The nth-of-type(n) selector matches every element (nth-child), of the same type of tag name, as present in its parent. n can be a number, a keyword (odd or even), or a formula (like an + b). The rem denotes the element's font size.

The container follows a lot of properties to display the box. Here we use a width of 750px, a height of 100 percent, a margin level of 10vh auto, and the contents are aligned to the center. Next, the box padding is 2rem, the margin is also 2rem, the border is 2px solid and applied with color, and the minimum width of the box is 300px. Using an HTML tag, we can add the content of the box. The paragraph is displayed using the p tag. This should be specified within the div class.
