Challenge: Delete Many Documents with model.remove()

Link to the challenge:


This is the signature of the .remove() method - it takes the query object, and a boolean that determines whether to remove the first matching record (if true) or all matching (if false, which is default).

You are calling .remove() like this:

Person.remove({name: nameToRemove}, (err, data) => {
  done(err, data);

passing the query object, and a function. I suspect the unexpected token error is happening because that second parameter is throwing out an error code.

The Mongo docs are very useful here: - and in particular, look at both the parameters the function takes, and what the function returns. That writeResult will tell you if you’ve had an error or not.
