Accessing nested objects,

Tell us what’s happening:

hi guys, I don’t get the purpose of this challenge, and my other question is that after var is written my Storage which is a object. and at the last is another VAR which after that was written gloveBoxContents. is it an object as well?

Your code so far

// Setup
var myStorage = {
"car": {
  "inside": {
    "glove box": "maps",
    "passenger seat": "crumbs"
  "outside": {
    "trunk": "jack"

var gloveBoxContents =["glove box"]; // Change this line

Challenge: Accessing Nested Objects

Link to the challenge:

if gloveBoxContent has value of an object or not depends on what is being assigned to it, so

do you know what is the value of this?

yes I get this part. my Storage is object and car, inside properties and glove box is value. if i’m not mistaken , but I dont get why its written in that way with var gloveBoxContents .

other than myStorage those are all property names - a property name is used to access a property value. If you follow them you can see which value is being accessed and so what’s the value of gloveBoxContents

ok thank u so much. :slight_smile:

The purpose is to show and practice how to extract a value from an object nexted in another

It’s not about storing the values

But you may need to store the value in a real life senerio hence the gloveBoxContent variable is to store the value extracted

It’s like bring out an ink from a pen
