since deselected and chkbox are two different classes
span.chkbox
{
}

span.deselected
{
}

if you want to give them the same style (or a common style), then
span.chkbox, span.deselected
{
}

Although I believe there is no restriction as to use spaces in a className, in this situation I would avoid using spaces.
Hence leave the spaces out and call the class "checkboxSelected"

The CSS selector would then be
 span.checkboxSelected
{
}

@qurvinder: Are you saying you want two class to one div/span?

Or do you want a class "selected'  and a class "deselected"?

yes.
Since in the original question, he specified two classes, and also clarified that he wants to apply the style to a div with two classes.

You can always specify multiple classes for any element, see the specification here

Communications was too async. I agree with the comments Qurvinder made.
His CSS suggestions are OK!
