Why in this exercise do we have to call the method with () following? Just a few lessons back we were taught that using () following a method call is unnecessary.


I believe the only time we were told that a method didn’t need to be called with parenthesis was during the “Getters” and “Setters” lessons. Therefore, that wouldn’t apply to “Destructured Assignments”.
