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

The challenge states: We want to be able to enter a 0, 1 or 2 in the text field to embolden the list item with the corresponding index

You are looping through the list item indexes with i. The entered value is provided as index. Where these two match is the condition you need.

law is an element. You want to match it's index i
