I did'nt understand this is very well.

Can someone please explain how to pass this challenge?

app.js
const https = require("https");
const request = https.get("https://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", response => {
    let responseBody = "";


   response.on("data", function(dataChunk) {
      responseBody += dataChunk;
    });


    response.on("end", function() => {
        console.log(responseBody);
    });
});

request.on("error", function(error)=> {
    console.error(error.message);
});

You've actually done what the challenge asked for. But you also apparently tried to convert the callback syntax from the arrow function style to the conventional style, and didn't quite get the syntax right.

Converting the function style isn't part of the challenge. I suggest starting over and doing only what the instructions ask for (just a one-liner for each task).
