Help with 'for in' loop challenge task 2

Help - can't seem to get my code to work for challenge task #2 of this code challenge dealing with using 'for in' loops to iterate through an object and log out key names and values. Everything I've tried results in a message that my code for task #1 of the challenge is no longer working. Absolutely stumped here - any help much appreciated!

var shanghai = {
  population: 14.35e6,
  longitude: '31.2000 N',
  latitude: '121.5000 E',
  country: 'CHN'

for(var prop in shanghai) {

for(var prop in shanghai) {
  console.log(prop,': ',shanghai[prop]);

Hi there! It would pass the challenge, but you were meant to change the first for loop, not add an additional one. So now the output is incorrect. If you remove the first for loop your code will pass! :sparkles:

The challenge says: 'Now that you are logging out the property names, include the property values too. In other words you want to log out 4 lines that include both the property name and value. For example: "population: 14.35e6"' So, it's not asking for two separate loops, but to change the existing one.
