var card = [ranks[i], suites[l]];

Hi, i can use this method?

function createDeck() { var suites = ['♠︎','♣︎','♥︎','♦︎']; var ranks = ['Ace','King','Queen','Jack','10','9','8','7','6','5','4', '3','2']; var deck = []; // add your code below here: for (var l = 0; l < suites.length; l += 1) { for (var i = 0; i < ranks.length; i += 1) { var card = [ranks[i], suites[l]]; deck.push(card); ...

in video with solution

let card = []; card.push(ranks[i], suites[l]);

or this line var card = [ranks[i], suites[l]]; add array in array and in array? It's work but can there be a mistake in this?

Using 'i' and 'I' as loop variables for nested for loops can be risky. As you mention, it would be easy to make a mistake. I suppose it is not much different from the use of 'i' and 'j' that is common. The biggest problem is that 'I' and '1' look very similar in some fonts. Try to make your code easy to read.
