I can’t find the remote_location in this exercise; Am I missing something? please help me/


Hey @mo3npk!
I’m not sure what you are asking… You are supposed to clone the science-quizzes remote into the my-quizzes directory. You clone remotes using git clone remote_location clone_name. In this case, science-quizzes is the remote_location and my-quizzes is the clone_name



Any idea what i’m doing wrong?

What you entered is correct something should be changed.

git clone /home/ccuser/workspace/curriculum/science-quizzes my-quizzes

You can find the path by entering pwd command.


If we have the concept of git clone then why do we need branching?

-’‘You can find the path by entering pwd command.’’

Thank you! Great!

they are two completely different functions.

Cloning makes a clone of the whole project and saves it to your local machine

Branching changes the project, already on your machine, to work on some other feature that hasn’t been implemented into the main project yet
