Accordion is the box on the webpage that contains mainly text article and have drop-down features. Accordion takes a small area and displays only questions to the user, if the user wants to read the answer then they need to open it by clicking or doing a hover on the question.

As we can see on the webpage of google, when we search for something there on the news feed we see one section as a People Also Ask right? that section is called accordion.

Basically accordion contains five headings and we have to click on that heading to see an answer or more headings. You would be thinking about what is heading, Look at the Image of the accordion that I have given on the webpage, there are a total five-question, that is called headings.

You have to watch the given tutorial on Responsive Accordion Design to get an idea about how it works and the role of codes behind this design.
