Unable to delete documents - mongoDB

I’m unable to delete many documents and I’m not able to figure out where I’m going wrong. Can anyone please point out where I’m wrong?
Thank you.

Here is what I have in my code

const removeManyPeople = (done) => {
  const nameToRemove = "Mary";
  Person.deleteMany({name: nameToRemove},(err,res)=>{
    if(err) return console.log(err)

The error I’m getting:

(node:851) [MONGODB DRIVER] Warning: collection.remove is deprecated. Use deleteOne, deleteMany, or bulkWrite instead.
SyntaxError: Unexpected token o in JSON at position 1

Downgrade your mongoose version to the one you were asked to use in the starting challenge.

Thank you very much, just did that. Also can I please ask why is it not working with Person.deleteMany() ?. or FCC test suite is not able to detect it?

After you use the correct version of mongoose it should pass the test.

I can’t remember off the top of my head what the change is to mongoose that is making it fail with newer versions.
