var obj = { 

name: "Simon", 

age: "20", 

clothing: { 

style: "simple",

hipster: false 

  } 

for(var propt in obj){ 

console.log(propt + ': ' + obj[propt]);

}

How does the variable propt represent the properties of the object? It's not a built-in method or property. Why does it come up with every property in the object?

If you want to iterate though object properties than you can use hasOwnProperty method see the code below:-

for (var property in object) { 

if (object.hasOwnProperty(property)) { 

// do stuff 

 } 

}

The hasOwnProperty method simply checks to see if this is a property specific to this class, and not one inherited from the base class.
