Challenge: Front End Development Libraries Projects - Build a Random Quote Machine

Link to the challenge:

You are setting a single quote on mount then you try to index into the array of just that single quote.

componentDidUpdate() {

You want to set the state array to all the quotes and then index into it to get a single quote. You can do the indexing in the render method for example.

I would also suggest you do not hardcode any values in the randomQuotes method. Use the actual length of the array instead. If the API changes the hardcoded value can fail.

Second point: Yes I do know that and this is just for testing which I’ll change later but regarding the main problem I did not really understand what you are trying to tell me

Add all the quotes to the state array in the fetch. Then use the state array to get each individual quote by indexing into it.
