for example,
<div class="class1 class2">abc</div>
.class1 {background-color:red}
.class2 {background-color:blue}
then I get blue background.

In contrast,
<div class="class1 class2">abc</div>
.class2 {background-color:blue}
.class1 {background-color:red}
Then I get red background.

It is based on the order of the classes defined in the css file but not in the div's class="..."??

It is based on the order the CSS is written in, not the HTML.  The class attributes can be in any order.  This is because the HTML file is loaded, then it reads the CSS file.

It is because it will read the class1 first and give the color Red, then it'll scroll and give color Blue in the first scenario.

While in the second case, it'll give color Red because Class1 is specified at the last.

Order of Classes in CSS is taken into consideration.
