import * as jquery from 'jquery';
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
  title = 'angularselect2';

5. Finally add below code into your app.component.html file:
<div style="text-align:center">
    Welcome to {{ title }}!
