THIS IS WHAT I DID IN PART 1.

function print (message, element) {
 var HTML = document.getElementById(element);
  HTML.innerHTML= message;
}
function list (name, track, achievements, points) {
  return "<li>"+ name
        + "<ul>"
           + "<li>"+ track.join(", ") + "</li>"
           + "<li>" + achievements + "</li>"
           + "<li>" + points + "</li>"
      + "</ul></li>"
}
var insideHTML= "<ol>";
var students = [
  {name:'ron', track:['html', 'css', 'javascript'], achievements:3000, points:3100 },
    {name:'grace', track:['design', 'photoshop', 'html'], achievements:2000, points:2100 },
    {name:'mae', track:['c#', 'python', 'php'], achievements:1000, points:1100 },
    {name:'nel', track:['javascript', 'python', 'design'], achievements:4000, points:100 },
    {name:'boom', track:['javascript', 'c#', 'android'], achievements:4000, points:100 }
];


for (i=0; students.length > i; i++) {
    insideHTML+=list(students[i].name, students[i].track, students[i].achievements, students[i].points);
}
insideHTML+="</ol>"
print(insideHTML, "output");

I can only recommend quitting your job if it alleviates the burden of learning, also if your learning environment is positive and reinforces learning then it is a great choice to do so....

Oh I apologize. My question is, how can I print the property? In this code I have only printed the value. I was hoping to get this format printed. Please help, thanks! :D

I assume this code comes with some html like: <div id="output"></div>, right? Are you attempting to send the output to a printer? You can use window.print(); but I don't think it accepts arguments. It prints what was output to the document. If you want to just view the variable, you can use: console.log(innerHTML);

Yes I did! :D The part 2 was a bit challenging.. Though thankfully I was able to do it without peaking on the solution video. hahah. Now I'm on the third challenge, the search thingy. I hope I can do it. It's hard to work at the same time study. I'm planning to quit my job so that I can study more.. Do you think it's a wise decision? Thanks for the advice! :)
