What you want is console.log(name);

The console object has a log method, and they want you to pass the name variable that was declared on line 1 as an argument to the method.

It might be a good idea to start at the beginning of the JavaScript Basics track if you're new to code, and new to JavaScript, before jumping into the Node course.
