Q3: Create "Back to top" link to jump to the top of the page in HTML?

To solve this we will first create an anchor tag a at the beginning of the page ideally close to the body tag. And we will set the name attribute of the anchor tag to lets say back-to-top.

<a name="back-to-top"></a>

Now we create another anchor tag in the page from were we want to jump back to the top of the page and we set the href attribute to #back-to-top.

<a href="#back-to-top">Back to top</a>
