#1

Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far


// Setup
var testObj = {
  "an entree": "hamburger",
  "my side": "veggies",
  "the drink": "water"
};

// Only change code below this line

var entreeValue = testObj.entreeValue;   // Change this line
var drinkValue = testObj.drinkValue;    // Change this line

#2

There is no property named entreevalue or drinkvalue in the testObj
So that won’t work. I suggest you reread this challenge from the start because you have missed the point of what is being taught.


#3

You didn’t assign the values to entreeValue and drinkValue using bracket, you used dot. Read my code below for more understanding:

// Setup
var testObj = {
  "an entree": "hamburger",
  "my side": "veggies",
  "the drink": "water"
};

// Only change code below this line

 var entreeValue = testObj["an entree"];   // Change this line
 var drinkValue = testObj["the drink"];    // Change this line
