[object Object]: What does this mean?

Answer: [object Object] is a string representation of an object. You may see this text if you use alert() to print an object to the screen, for instance.

<script>
   let objA = {
     name: "christina",
     degree: "music",
     instrument: "flute"
   }
   
   alert(objA);     
 </script>
