Filter example in JQuery docs

    Please explain how the following jquery snippet works

    Jquery docs says this code will alter the first list item only, as it contains exactly one “strong” tag

    I am confused about the “this” part in the following line of code. I believe “this” returns “li”elements and I can not correlate it with strong

    return $(‘strong’, this).length == 1;

    $(element, context)

    So `$(‘strong’, this)` is equivalent to `$(this).find(‘strong’)`

    The snippet you’ve provided will return every `

  • ` that contains a `` element.
