JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM Traversing the DOM Parent Traversal

On line 2 of app.js, traverse to the parent element of the removeMe element.

I don't know what to do. On line 2 of app.js, traverse to the parent element of the removeMe element. Can someone send me the codes for Challenge Task 1 and 2? Many Thanks.

app.js
var removeMe = document.querySelector('.remove_me'); 
Let parent = removeMe.parentNode;
index.html
<!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're really close there!. I see just two issues:

  • there should not be quotes around the statement
  • the word "let" should be all lower-case (instead of "Let")

And a hint for task 2: the "removeChild" method of the parent might come in handy.
