JavaScript AJAX Basics (retiring) AJAX Concepts Review: How AJAX Works

This question should be edited.

The video explicitly says that it's simply XHR for short, therefore being none of the above. It doesn't just say XHR Object.

Just a simple, yet necessary observation...

I can see how this might be confused, but the question is correct.

In the video, the "it" being referred to in the sentence "It's sometimes shortened to just XHR" is just the term "XMLHttpRequest". If you feel this constitutes a bug in the video, you can make a bug report using the procedure described on the Support page.

Thank you for the response. I just thought it might help others in the future...

It still could, though unfortunately quizzes don't have a "Questions" tab at the bottom like videos do.

Happy coding!
