I used remove.parentNode('removeMe') but that also did not work
what aam i doing wrong
var removeMe = document.querySelector('.remove_me'); var parent = removeMe.parentNode; parent.removeChild('removeMe');
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Parent Traversal</title> </head> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" /> <body> <ul> <li>Hello</li> <li>Hi</li> <li class="remove_me">Good bye!</li> <li>Howdy</li> </ul> <script src="app.js"></script> </body> </html>
You set the variable removeMe to refer to the element you want to remove from the DOM. Use that variable instead of the string in removeChild. 'removeMe' as a string is not a valid node but your reference is.
