Example

Odd and even are keywords that can be used to match child elements whose index is odd or even.

Here, we specify two different background colors for odd and even p elements, counting from the last child:

p:nth-last-child(odd) {
    background: #ff0000;
}

p:nth-last-child(even) {
    background: #0000ff;
}
