hey @kartik,

A combinator is something that explains the relationship between the selectors.

A CSS selector can contain more than one simple selector. Between the simple selectors, we can include a combinator.

 Generally,there are four different combinators in CSS/CSS5:

1.descendant selector (space)
2.child selector (>)
3.adjacent sibling selector (+)
4.general sibling selector (~)

Descendant Selector:
The descendant selector matches all element that are descendants of a specified element.

Example
<style type="text/css">
        div span {
          background-color:red;
          color:Blue;
        }
</style>

Child Selector:
The child selector selects all elements that are the immediate children of a specified element.

Example
<style type="text/css">
        div > span {
          font-size:20px;
          background-color:blue;
          color:red;
        }
 </style>
Selects all <span> elements that are immediate children of a <div> elements.

Adjacent Sibling Selector:
The adjacent sibling selector selects all elements that are the adjacent siblings of a specified element.

Sibling elements must have the same parent element, and "adjacent" means "immediately following".

Example
<style type="text/css">
        div + span {
          font-size:20px;
          background-color:green;
          color:blue;
        }
 </style>
Selects all <span> elements that are siblings of <div> elements.

General Sibling Selector:
The general sibling selector selects all elements that are siblings of a specified element.

The following example selects all <p> elements that are siblings of <div> elements: 

Example
div ~ p {
  background-color: green;
}
