The jQuery() can also be written as $(). It is used as a selector for searching through the DOM elements that match the provided selector. It searches within the DOM element at the document root.

Example

$(“h1”).hide() ;

In the above statement, $() selects the h1 heading and applies the provided action. It hides all the heading h1 tags in the document.
