why this doesn't work ??

In the lesson is clearly said that we can use our own key variable name. However I see this is not the case at all. I tried different names nut only the "prop". Did I miss something ??

script.js
var shanghai = {
  population: 14.35e6,
  longitude: '31.2000 N',
  latitude: '121.5000 E',
  country: 'CHN'
};

for ( var rob in shanghai ) {
  conslole.log(rob, " : " [shanghai[rob] );
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JavaScript Objects</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="script.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

1) You have a typo with conslole instead of console

2) You can use rob and for task 1 that is what you are supposed to log

var shanghai = {
  population: 14.35e6,
  longitude: '31.2000 N',
  latitude: '121.5000 E',
  country: 'CHN'
};

for ( var rob in shanghai ) {
  console.log(rob);
}
