JavaScript DOM Scripting By Example Editing and Filtering Names Fix DOM Manipulation Code

I changed the code a bit but I'm stuck on it.

I'm supposed to add or change anything within the code. I tried to but I'm confused about what to do next. Any help would be appreciated.

app.js
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 (true) {

           law.style.fontWeight = 'bold';
       } else {
           law.style.fontWeight = 'normal';
       }
     ( index[] = 10 )
    }
});

The correct test condition would compare the loop variable with the index that was chosen on the page.
