Thanks for bringing that to my attention, Pooja. I'll check with our content team to see if we can get this video removed.. I see Cydney looked into this back in 2015. I'll see if I can get her original request fulfilled. :)

Thanks for letting us know about this Kai Jun Xu! We really appreciate it :) I made a note to the content editors so that the mistake can be corrected. However, as I've mentioned, since we're a really small team with many different projects at the moment, it may be some time before the numbering is fixed. With that being said, in the meantime, other students will be able to identify the mistake more easily thanks to your comment :) Thanks again!
