Object Property with bracket and dot notation test failure

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
I am using dot notation as well as bracket notation. Why does not it passes the tests?

  **Your code so far**

var myStorage = {
"car": {
  "inside": {
    "glove box": "maps",
    "passenger seat": "crumbs"
  "outside": {
    "trunk": "jack"

var gloveBoxContents = myStorage.car.inside.["glove box"]

Hi @kick933 ,

myStorage.car.inside.["glove box"]

If you are using the bracket notation, it doesn’t need to be preceded by a dot!

You may want to revisit the challenges on dot and bracket notation.

I am confused as to why first test is passing since i used dot notation mixed u pwith bracket notation?

That is a good question. It really should throw a syntax error.

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token '['

As far as I can tell, it has to do with the code transpilation (Babel). If I add the code to the Babel repl it removes the dot. Not really ideal in a learning environment.
