Terraform destroy single resource or all resources | How to destroy a specific resource using Terraform in AWS cloud

If you would like to destroy all the resources you had created using Terraform, all you have to do is perform the below command:
 
terraform destroy
and type yes to confirm to delete all the resources.

The above command will destroy all the resources.
 
But let's say you would like to destroy only a specific resource you have created using Terraform. You can do it by passing an argument in terraform destroy command. For e.g., if you would like to delete an EC2 instance, you can mention like below:

First get all the resources created by Terraform:
terraform state list

f you would like to delete the EC2 instance,
terraform destroy -target aws_instance.myInstanceName

if you would like to delete a security group, you can mention like below:
terraform destroy -target aws_security_group.security_group_name
