Yes, you are correct. Thejoin method of the list does return a string that is a joining or concatenation of the list. However, your console.log() is blank, although you may have meant it to be like that.

You may want to capture the output of the join into another variable and log the output.

const planets = ['Earth','Mars','Saturn','Mercury','Jupiter','Venus','Uranus','Neptune'];

// the method of 'join' being captured into a variable
const planetsString = planets.join(', ');

// the original
console.log(planets);

// the joined string
console.log(planetsString);
