Making a div vertically scrollable using CSS

Making a div vertically scrollable is easy by using CSS overflow property. There are different values in overflow property. For example: overflow:auto; and the axis hiding procedure like overflow-x:hidden; and overflow-y:auto;. It will make vertical and horizontal scrollable bar and the auto will make only vertically scrollable bar.
For vertical scrollable bar use the x and y axis. Set the overflow-x:hidden; and overflow-y:auto; that will automatically hide the horizontal scroll bar and present only vertical scrollbar. Here the scroll div will be vertically scrollable.

Example 1:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <style>
            h1 {
                color:Green;
            }
            div.scroll {
                margin:4px, 4px;
                padding:4px;
                background-color: green;
                width: 500px;
                height: 110px;
                overflow-x: hidden;
                overflow-x: auto;
                text-align:justify;
            }
        </style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <center>
