Can somebody tell me how do I know what to put on body or headers ?
in this exercise we assign them to:

const response = await fetch(url, {method: 'POST',
      body: data,
      headers: {
  'Content-type': 'application/json',
  'apikey': apiKey

I don’t understand what do they mean and where do they come from? Especially considering that in previous exercise we had body: JSON.stringify{id:200}
