Can anyone help me to undrstnd the output of the below code

Problem Description:

  let obj1 ={
    fName : 'Ayush',
    lName : 'Singh',
    city: 'Asansol',
    getName : function(){
      console.log(`I am ${this.fName} ${this.lName} from ${}`)
  let obj2 = {
    fName : 'Aman'

  obj2.__proto__ = obj1;

how proto work is it as getter and setter of object.

why your obj1.proto doesnot work because you have not set it. you only set it for obj2.

Solution – 2

it look inside obj2 for "getName" method but not found here, so it look at the prototype of obj2 which is obj1, there is a method call "getName" here

obj2.proto.getName() = (obj2.proto).getName() = obj1.getName()

obj1.proto.getName() You are not calling "getName" method inside obj1, you are calling the "getName" method inside the prototype of obj1, but it is not found here
