DOM Scripting By example

last challenge task: //replace 'false' with a correct test condition on the line below I enter: if(index<=2)
the preview looks ok, when I enter 0, 1 or 2. Am I missing something?

const laws = document.getElementsByTagName('li');
const indexText = document.getElementById('boldIndex');
const button = document.getElementById('embolden');

button.addEventListener('click', (e) => {
    const index = parseInt(indexText.value, 10);

    for (let i = 0; i < laws.length; i += 1) {
       let law = laws[i];

       // replace 'false' with a correct test condition on the line below
       if (index<=2) {

           law.style.fontWeight = 'bold';
       } else {
           law.style.fontWeight = 'normal';

If you use (index <= 2) you will find any cases where there the current user input (index) is less than or equals to 2, so all of Newton's Laws of Motion would be highlighted, in all scenarios where the user inputs 2 or below. By using (index === i) you are specifically looking for all cases where the current user input (index) matches with whatever value is currently being iterated through in the for-loop (i), highlighting only the one that match the user input.
