Hello @Aishwarya28,

SPAN, LI and A tags are HTML tags.
You can look up further by looking up HTML tags.
I believe usually SPAN is used for wrapping simple text, LI for serial data, and A when it contains any link.


As @whyyouandi said, they are html tags -
Span are similar to Div tags but they are inline so can be alongside other tags.
LI is used for lists or selections.
A is anchor tag - it is used for hyperlinks to other URLS or positions within the same website.

When using them in selectors in UiPath - you can adjust the level of selector to define which element you want to interact with.
