Solution :

HTML Code :

<!DOCTYPE html><!-- HTML5 document type declaration -->
<html><!-- Start of HTML document -->
<head><!-- Start of head section -->
<meta charset="utf-8"><!-- Declares document character encoding -->
<title>How to define a single line break</title><!-- Sets the title of the webpage -->
</head><!-- End of head section -->
<body><!-- Start of body section -->
<p>The quick brown fox jumps<br>over the lazy dog.</p><!-- Paragraph element with a single line break inserted using the <br> tag -->
</body><!-- End of body section -->
</html><!-- End of HTML document -->


  • This HTML document starts with a doctype declaration indicating it's an HTML5 document.
  • Inside the <html> tags, the document structure begins.
  • The <head> section contains metadata about the document, such as character encoding and the title.
  • The <body> section is where the visible content of the webpage resides.
  • Within the body section, there's a paragraph (<p>) element containing the text "The quick brown fox jumps" followed by a single line break (<br>) tag, and then "over the lazy dog."
  • The <br> tag is used to insert a single line break within the paragraph, causing the text to be displayed on separate lines.
  • The HTML document ends with the closing </html> tag.
