:point_right: It may not have been explicitly discussed in any videos at this point.

But, given the name of any method (even if unfamiliar), the name of an object it can be called on, and the argument that should be passed to it, you should be able to construct the code for a valid call. It's quite similar to what you did for task 1.

You should not need it to complete the challenge, but if you'd like more information on the dir method, check the MDN page.
