JavaScript Node.js Basics (2014) Introduction to Node.js The Console

Not sure how to solve

Sometimes printing out one line won't do. On a new line, use the dir method on the console object to print out the details variable.

I don't know what to do here ...reviewed the video but didn't find any clues

var name = "Andrew";
var details = { favouriteLanguage: "JavaScript", age: 31, children: 2.4 } 
var errorMessage = "Something bad has occurred";

You have to call the 'dir' method from console.

console.dir( yourVariable );

why have to call the 'dir' method? Is part of node.js?

nevermind the next question is answered "Sometimes printing out one line won't do."

manual and documentation is at http://nodejs.org/api/console.html
