HTML br tag

HTML br tag breaks one line text into multiline text. It is empty type element.

<p>
 This text can <br>
 be broken into two <br>
 lines.
 <br>
 The br tag is breaking a paragraph into multiple lines.
</p>

</>

This text can
be broken into two
lines.
The br tag is breaking a paragraph into multiple lines.

In the above example, if we do not use br tag and break the paragraph then paragraph retains its behavior.

But the presence of br tag causes the single line paragraph to break into a multiline paragraph.
