What should I do if after changine directory and entering “git remote -v” this error message appears:

fatal: Not a git repository (for any of the parent directories): .git


I am not getting desired output.

After typing both the below commands -
cd my-quizzes
git remote -v

Output: fatal: Not a git repository(for any of the parent directories)

git clone science-quizzes my-quizzes

cd my-quizzes
git remote -v

I restarted the whole process again.
