When printing an array to the console, I don’t want the square brackets being printed also. How do I do this?

When you print an array by just calling its name it is a `raw printout` and it is correct.
You are actually printing out the script that looks like an array.

In order to correctly printing out the array items you will have to create a loop.

``````for(var i = 0; i < junk.length; i++){
console.log(junk[i]);
}
``````

It prints out:
naomi, kai, 9, 0

Hi

I was just wondering why do we use square brackets now instead of {} parenthesis or curly brackets as everyone has different names for these thanks Ian.

curly backets (`{}`) are used for blocks of code, like `if`, `for` and `function`

square brackets are used for arrays (and associative arrays)
