JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Tracking Data Using Objects Accessing All of the Properties in an Object

Bummer! It's a good idea to use the `var` keyword in a `for in` loop like this: `for (var key in shanghai)`.

What am I doing wrong?

var shanghai = {
  population: 14.35e6,
  longitude: '31.2000 N',
  latitude: '121.5000 E',
  country: 'CHN'

for (property in shanghai) {
  console.log(property, ": ", shanghai[property]); 
<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">

<script src="script.js"></script>

The problem is that property is not defined as a variable.

for (var property in shanghai) {
  console.log(property, ": ", shanghai[property]); 

This should work.

Thank you Shanil. Confusing when in the video, var was not used but you have to use it in the exercise.
