Simple code not working - Bug in Challenge?

This is the second time where I could not get pass challenge task where my code seems fine. It works when I use the console in the chrome browser. It also worked for the first part of the task where I needed to get the first item in the array. (this part is asking for the last).

script.js
var players = ['Jim', 'Shawna', 'Andrew', 'Lora', 'Aimee', 'Nick'];
console.log(players[5]);

Hi Michael,

Try adding new code, not replacing the code you wrote on a previous challenge. The second exercise here expects the output to contain both the first and last player names to be printed.

Some of these exercises can be tricky because you have to pay attention to the exact instructions and the hints.

You may have overlooked the part of the challenge instructions that say "Important: In each task of this code challenge, the code you write should be added to the code from the previous task."
