There is something wrong with the evaluation of this answer. It recognizes the right answer as wrong.

I have tried my code in a chrome browser, it runs fine.

script.js
var player = ['Jim', 'Shawna', 'Andrew', 'Lora', 'Aimee', 'Nick'];
var element = player[0]
console.log(element);
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

In the original challenge code, the supplied array is named "players" (with an "s"), but here it has been changed to "player" (singular). Also, the challenge expects you to log the indexed item directly without creating an intermediate variable.

For best results with challenges, never change provided code unless the instructions explicitly require it, and only do what they ask for with nothing "extra".
