Having problems with Wikipedia API

I am currently doing the Wikipedia Viewer coding challenge. I decided to use fetchAPI for this challenge.After hours of research i found a URL where i could send request and get search results but the data that i received doesnot seem to be in JSON format despite of me requesting the data in json format.
The URL is = > “https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=opensearch&search=hello&format=json&origin=*&callback=?"
And i got the following data that doesnot parse to JSON
