Where'd the code for the first task go? Don't replace the code you've written in the first task; just write more code below the already-written code!

var players = ['Jim', 'Shawna', 'Andrew', 'Lora', 'Aimee', 'Nick'];
console.log(players[0]);
console.log(players[5]);

Note the hint displayed beneath the instructions: "Important: In each task of this code challenge, the code you write should be added to the code from the previous task."

So when you move on to task 2, instead of replacing the task 1 code you should leave the code written for task 1 as-is and add the task 2 code below it.
