It would be the `:matches(a, b) c :matches(a, b)` one. But it isn't nonsense. The inner a and b could match the same selector without being the same element. Imagine if it was `:matches(div, span) p :matches(div, span)`, for instance, which is a real world equivalent. That would match `div p div`, `span p span`, `div p span`, and `span p div`. Those do actually exist in the wild.
