Selecting items in a group

So some InDesign users can be really organized and they utilize groups extensively. They even create what's called nested groups, so groups within groups. The problem with that is that selecting items within a group or selecting a nested group within another nested group can be a little tricky if you don't really know some shortcuts here. So we are going to walk through some of these scenarios. First, let's create a group again. So I am going to drag select with the Selection tool across these five items here and then I will Shift-click on that background object, because I don't want that to be part of the group, and I am going to group that's Command+G or Ctrl+G. Great, there's one group.

It gives me the dash line that indicates that is a group. I am going to turn this text frame, in this yellow text frame into a group. So I have selected them both by Shift- clicking, Command+G or Ctrl+G. Now I have a second group. I am actually going to select these two objects now...
