Console Error?

I typed <code>rm .git -r</code> in the console, which I believe is the right answer, but the Code Challenge keeps saying "Bummer! Failed"! Is there something wrong with the console or my code, and is there a fix?

Hi Ben,

You're close: it's a matter of order. You'll want that recursive flag to go after the rm command.

 rm -r .git

Hope this helps!
