    In terms of parent selectors, everything I've found so far says no parent selectors, not even in CSS3. Some have tried with the nth- pseudo-elements or the before pseudo-class and combinators, but that's really as close as we get to establishing prior or pattern relationships. Unfortunately, no direct operator for reaching parents.

    Is it possible that the study guide was wrong on the last question? From
    The backface-visibility property is not supported in any of the major browsers.
    The backface-visibility property defines whether or not an element should be visible when not facing the screen.

    This property is useful when an element is rotated, and you do not want to see its backside.

    Doesn't seem to have any connection with opacity...

    I tried option B with the two background elements and it worked as expected.

    The other question that came up (that I'm not finding a clear answer for yet) is how the CSS hierarchy and specificity rules apply to combinators and the attributes selector. If anyone finds anything on this, that would be awesome!

    In terms of style sheet applications:

    * Browsers have their default styles - these are the user agent style sheets.
    * Once those are applied, then the author of the website's rules are applied - first the normal, then the !important.
    * Finally, if the end user has overridden any of those styles, those are applied.
