Task #8 : remove the '.extra' <div>

// Task 7

const btnDelete = document.createElement('button'); btnDelete.textContent = 'Delete';

const extra = document.querySelector('.extra'); extra.appendChild(btnDelete);

// 8. Why not write it like this, isn't it easier?

btnDelete.addEventListener('click', () => { extra.remove();

I would say that your solution is valid. As Guil said in the video, his is only one solution. There are always other ways to accomplish the same task. Some are easier, some are more complicated, some are faster, and some are simply easier to read. I don't remember if he covered the remove() method in the course, but if not, then that would certainly be one reason he may have chosen to not use that method.
