This is selected with a child combinator with the parent #combinators, so it has a 10em indent.

This text is wrapped in a div within. So it doesn’t get an additional offset (which it would if a child selector was used).

This gets selected with the immediate sibling combinator. This is why it looks dark blue.

This gets selected with the general sibling combinator with the div. Hence, it is red.
