Did I miss something?

Stage 1, challenge Task 2 of 3 On a new line, use the dir method on the console object to print out the details variable.

app.js
var name = "Andrew";
var details = { favouriteLanguage: "JavaScript", age: 31, children: 2.4 } 
var errorMessage = "Something bad has occurred";

console.log(name);

Hey, it is asking you to call the dir method on console object. If you remember the syntax for methods you call it with a period just like you did with log above.

console.dir();

Then it wants you to pass the details variable into the dir method.

console.dir(details);

Hope this helps!
