    const req = new XMLHttpRequest();
    req.open("GET",'/json/cats.json', true);
    req.send();
    req.onload=function(){
      const json = JSON.parse(req.responseText);
      document.getElementsByClassName('message')[0].innerHTML = JSON.stringify(json);
console.log(json[0].altText);
    };
  };
});
</script>

body {
  text-align: center;

Challenge: Access the JSON Data from an API

Link to the challenge:

Hi,

I don’t quite understand the question. You don’t need to change anything in the GET call, you need to show a specific data in the console.

The assignment says:

For the cat with the “id” of 2, print to the console the second value in the codeNames array.

For printing to console, you don’t need to add anything to the DOM. a simple console.log is enough.

Hope this helps.

Yeah just checked it and fetchs the entire json without a problem, thx
