I am a new user of Git. I have forked a repository called Spoon-Knife (available for practicing forking with Git). Then, I cloned it locally by running

git clone

This repository contains three branches, i.e.

  • master,
  • test-branch,
  • change-the-title.

When I run git branch, it only shows *master, not the remaining two branches. And when I run

git checkout test-branch

I get the following error:

error: pathspec 'test-branch' did not match any file(s) known to git.

Why is this happening? How can I solve this problem?
