HI @poojaissar143 !

I was looking at your package.json file and it doesn’t look like the correct starter file.

The correct starter file should have this information in it

	"name": "fcc-learn-npm-package-json",
	"dependencies": {
		"express": "^4.14.0"
	"main": "server.js",
	"scripts": {
		"start": "node server.js"
	"repository": {
		"type": "git",
		"url": "https://idontknow/todo.git"

I would create a new Replit starter project just to make sure you have all of the correct starter code needed for these exercises.

Then inside the package.json file, you will need to add the author key.

If you need extra help, you can refer to the example they gave you here

"author": "Jane Doe",

Hope that helps!
