In this article, I will solve a Simply Square CSS Challenge on CSS Battle. Let's look at the problem first.

Problem

We need to create the following container by using CSS Properties only: Simply Square

Solution

So now look at the Solution and how we are going to achieve this.

HTML

First, create an HTML for this, I've used the two containers to do that. you can use Pseudo-classes as well.

index.html

<div class="box">
  <div></div>
</div>

CSS

Now let's style the containers.

styles.css

.box {
  width: 400px;
  height: 300px;
  background: #5d3a3a;
}

After applying the CSS to .box it will look like this:

Now we style the child div of .box.

styles.css

.box {
  width: 400px;
  height: 300px;
  background: #5d3a3a;
}
 
.box div {
  background: #b5e0ba;
  width: 200px;
  height: 200px;
}

After applying the CSS, here's the result:

Now the problem is solved by simply the above styles.

Alternate Solution

This is one more way you can do this even though there are many ways, I like the following:

HTML

index.html

<div></div>

CSS

styles.css

body{
  background: #5d3a3a;
  margin:0;
  
}
div {
  width: 200px;
  height: 200px;
  background: #b5e0ba;
}
Tip

Minify the code or CSS by using any CSS Minifier. It helps you to reduce the characters in the code that will increase score.
