Add the "w3r_bg_blue" class to a paragraph that already has a "w3r_bg_orange" class

 <p class="w3r_bg_orange">The best way we learn anything is by practice and exercise questions.</p>
 
p {
    background: white;
  }
  .w3r_bg_orange{
    background: orange;
  }
  .w3r_bg_red {
    color: red;
  }

<body>
<p class="w3r_bg_orange">The best way we learn anything is by practice and exercise questions.</p>
<button id="button1">Click to see the effect</button>
</body>
