Learn Fetch and Promises By Building an fCC Authors Page - Step 27

Tell us what’s happening:

Within the paragraph element, replace bio with a ternary operator. For the condition, check if the length of bio is greater than 50. If it is, use the .slice() method to extract the first 50 characters of bio and add an ellipsis at the end. Otherwise, show the full bio .

Error:
Sorry, your code does not pass. Hang in there.

If the bio text is greater than 50 characters, you should extract the first 50 characters with slice() and replace the rest with .... Don’t forget that indexes are zero-based.
