var players = ['Jim', 'Shawna', 'Andrew', 'Lora', 'Aimee', 'Nick']; console.log(players); console.log(players[-1]);
Yes, there's a few ways to get the last item in an array.
An array index starts at 0, but the length will return 6.
The length property of an array does not start off on the 0 index. Therefore, if you type console.log(players[players.length]) it will come back undefined because there's nothing at index 6. Index stops at 5.
With that in mind you can use the example below.
console.log(players[players.length - 1]);
