We just answer in you previous post.

Did you try these functions ? Their behavior is so different from each other.

Then again :

alert(message); //Open a DIALOG BOX with the message

document.write(htmlcontent); // Write the provided text IN THE PAGE

console.log(something); // Print the content in the browser's JAVASCRIPT CONSOLE

The behavior of those function are really well explained in the course, if you don't grasp the use of them, try reviewing the video.
