Hi, I am a total newbie and do not really know how to write queries. I followed the link in the quiz that takes me to writing the count() function (here) but I am still very lost about how to implement this. You can see from my screenshot that I am just taking stabs in the dark with this. What resource can help me better understand how to write queries? Thank you so much.
Your are missing value for the field you are querying as the error indicates
Give some value to awards.wins:2 or 4 etc
Same with awards.nominations
I hope you found @Ramachandra_37567’s response helpful. Please let us know if you are still facing any issues.
I still do not know how this query works and could use some resources or references that explain the syntax of writing queries. I tried adding :2 as suggested but still get the same error message, so I am unsure of what my syntax should look like. Here’s a screenshot. Thank you.
You are adding 2 at the wrong place. A query document must conform to the JSON syntax. You will find more information on the JSON syntax at https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/core/document/.
For your specific case, the key of the field is awards.nominations and the value is 2.
Thank you so much, I was really stumped and didn’t know what to look for. Now that I know I need to learn JSON syntax I should hopefully do better. I appreciate the link as well!
In case anyone else struggled with this, I figured it out. This is what I used:
And oh heavens, after I submitted my answer they basically gave the answer away anyway. Feeling kind of stupid but also proud that I figured it out on my own and now hopefully I can do it without being given the answer LOL. My version is different than the one given in the assignment but it worked just fine.
I am in a new course but I can’t seem to post any questions for assistance; when I try I get this error message: “There was an error tagging the topic.” Can you help me?
The above message pops up when I try to ask a question on the forum. I have moved on to the M220JS course and cannot seem to post any questions. What’s happening and what can I do? I can’t progress in the course until I solve the problem but I can’t ask for help! Very frustrated and confused.

That is the process I followed but it was not working. I tried again just now and it is working now. I should have done a video to show you but I am just glad my topic can post now.
